GuteArbeit: Exploring and Contextualizing Qualitative Data for Secondary Analysis
Project description:
In social sciences, a tremendous body of data is being collected through observations and interviews. Given their long-standing research tradition, scientists are accumulating information about behavior, attitudes and beliefs at specific time frames-“realities” that cannot be captured later. “Gute Arbeit” enables intelligent access to such qualitative data gathered within diverse contexts through developing, adapting and advancing approaches from Information Retrieval and Data Mining
