To address the specific needs of the culture research communities, the TA1 and TA5 team based at TIB have conceptualised and developed the Antelope (Annotation, Terminology Lookup and Personalization) project. Antelope extends the functionalities of existing tools (Falcon 2.0; iArt; TIB Terminology Service) into a common framework with the goal of closing the gaps between: 1) using semantic concepts in describing digitized cultural objects, 2) annotating different types of media, and 3) introducing automation in assisted data curation and annotation workflows.
