  "abstract": "<p>The poster aims at presenting the activities of the project as well as the results produced during its two first years.</p>\n\n<p>NewsEye is a European research project advancing the state of the art and introducing new concepts, methods and tools for digital humanities by providing enhanced access to historical newspapers for a wide range of users. With the data, tools and methods created by NewsEye,&nbsp;crucial user groups will be able to investigate views and perspectives on historical events and development and, as a consequence, the project will <strong>change the way European digital heritage data is (re)searched, accessed, used and analysed.</strong></p>\n\n<p>The project involves national libraries, humanities and social science research groups and computer science research groups. It addresses a number of challenges, which will result in significant scientific advances, in several directions:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>in text recognition, text analysis, natural language processing, computational creativity and natural language generation, with regard to historical newspapers but also more broadly,</li>\n\t<li>in digital newspaper research, addressing a number of editorial issues like OCR and article separation,</li>\n\t<li>in digital humanities, in respect to huge amounts of text material, availability of useful tools and possibilities of searching and browsing,</li>\n\t<li>in history, in terms of analysing historical assets with new methods across different language corpora.</li>\n</ul>\n\n<p>Funded by the European Union&rsquo;s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, NewsEye is coordinated by the University of La Rochelle (France) and will last until May 2021.</p>",
