Description

Three pilot applications have been selected to be implemented, the institutions that co-operate in the performance of this project are responsible for these applications. The applications (Topic 1, 2, and 3), require that the existing technology gaps be filled in the area of tools and digital language resources (Topic 4), this is a precondition for successful performance of all other tasks related to language technology application in security and other areas.

  • Topic 1: Communication of a person with an information system in emergency situations, with the use of a natural language (the POLINT-112 system) (AMU);
  • Topic 2: An intelligent court records searching machine developed on the basis of experiences in processing and archiving of copied text (AGH, DT);
  • Topic 3: A system for monitoring Polish language information on the Internet for the purpose of criminal intelligence analysis (AGH, DCS);
  • Topic 4: Construction and expansion of essential electronic information-linguistic tools (AGH, AMU).

Goals

The objective of this project is to develop language and information technologies for processing Polish language texts to be used in applications that will enhance public security.

Results

A prototype of a communication support system (emergency-number type) that will process information transferred in a natural language (a text message and, at later stages, voice), with particular focus on crisis management during mass events (such as the Euro 2012) (Topic 1).

A prototype of a court records search machine to look for text and graphics items on the basis of a situational description or key words (Topic 2).

A system for monitoring Polish language information on the Internet for the purpose of criminal analysis (Topic 3).

The generic resources of the Polish language engineering (Topic 4): machine dictionaries, vocabulary registers, ontologies such as WordNet (PolNet) and specialized ontologies, grammars and parsers, text processing algorithms (searching, classification, and “watermarking” algorithms).

    Starszy Specjalista ds. Komunikacji

    I’ve worked at PPHS since November 2017. For a long time I was responsible for the both international and national security projects implementation. Due to the development of PPHS and founding of the Communication Department, I was promoted to the strictly communication-related position.

    Currently, I’m the Communication & Dissemination Manger in the EU-funded PREVENT PCP and SAFE-CITIES projects in the area of security. Also, my responsibilities include managing the online channels administrated by PPHS and supporting the team in ongoing tasks.

    I have a diverse set of skills, which allows me to complete various tasks, such us content creation (texts, photos, videos), communication & processes planning, community and relations building, as well as online platforms management.
