The EU-funded Project MIRROR released a new video giving a sneak peek at the mock-up for its stakeholders. MIRROR will develop an integrated platform providing a great variety of search functionalities (e.g., search by MRSCs -Migration Related Semantic Concepts, free text, time, country, language, source, observed situation, etc.) and technologies (text, audio and video analysis, media summaries, trend analysis, etc.) as well as a customizable dashboard. It will allow for users to search across large amounts of information, combining the possibilities of multi-source (webpages, newsfeeds, TV, radio), multi-media and multi-lingual data and to retrieve meaningful insights out of the data.
The research project MIRROR will provide answers to the questions how people abroad perceive Europe as a potential destination for migration. The project aims at developing an integrated platform, a set of tools and a systematic methodology for the comprehensive intermedia analysis of the perception of Europe. Furthermore, MIRROR focuses on providing end-users such as civil society organizations, policymakers, border control authorities, research communities and companies with policy recommendations and actionable insights.
The video below provides an overview of the MIRROR´s platform interface:
