The Research Center contributes to the “Educating City” project, funded by MIUR, which intends to define new educational approaches, aimed at preparing a new generation of “smart” citizens, in other words more active, aware and inclusive, promoting new connections between schools , territory and society.

RAI contents are used for the training of knowledge extraction tools, among which a content classifier based on the MIUR taxonomy of the Disciplinary Scientific Sectors and a detector of references to places, people and organizations within texts derived from the component audio.
