In November 2013, the Ocean-Certain EU project started. The aim of the project is to understand the mechanisms underlying the impacts of climatic and human-made stressors on the food web and biological pump.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is used in the project to bridge the gap between the different terminologies used by the cross-disciplinary fields of research within the project (e.g., chemistry, biology, biotechnology, physical and chemical oceanography, geology, and socio-economic sciences).
Each sub-discipline's use of their own terminology makes it difficult for a scientist in that discipline to follow relevant publications in another one. Even if all publications had shared the same terminology, the amount of the publications are huge and increases fast by time.
From IDI Associate Professor Pinar Öztürk is the task leader and Post Doctoral Fellow Erwin Marsi will work for the project for three years. The project started in November 2013 and it will run for four years.
