ICT4LAW was a large interdisciplinary research project involving twelve partners, six academic partners and six industrial ones. The project was funded by Regione Piemonte and aimed at creating novel services for citizens, enterprises, public administration and policy makers. Further info are available here.
My role in the project was minimal, but it was useful to learn general expertise in Computational Law. I (co-)developed rule-bases NLP methods for recognizing modificatory provisions and statistical machine-learning ones for text classification.
The ICT4LAW project led to the design and the implementation of Eunomos, an advanced legal document management system based on legislative XML representation of laws. Furthermore, it led to the creation of the spin-off Nomotika S.R.L., founded by the Department of Computer Science of the University of Turin and the company Augeos S.P.A., both partners in the project.
