In the morning of Wednesday, 13th July, the Expofinder system was presented during one of the short paper sessions. Expofinder is the technological infrastructure developed purposely for this project, which allow us to automatically capture digital information about art exhibitions from more than 12.000 web sources. The Expofinder system also includes functionalities for data filtering, cleaning and structuring, according to the data model designed for the project.
During the presentation, it was specially emphasized the combination of algorithms and heuristic systems that make possible the intelligent capture of information, as well as their semi-automated structuring.
