Galateas Project

The GALATEAS project offers digital content providers an innovative approach to understanding users’ behaviour by analysing language-based information from transaction logs and facilitates the development of improved navigation and search technologies for multilingual content access.

The objectives of GALATEAS are the following.

Query log analysis. Analyse transaction logs containing queries to search engines for a given content provider and produce customized reports concerning the information needs of the users accessing that particular aggregation. The analysis is based on linguistic and statistical features.
Query translation. Translate queries coming from an external search engine into several target languages. The external search engine will use these translations to return results in languages other than the one in which the query was formulated. The languages addressed in the context of GALATEAS are Italian, French, English, German, Dutch, Modern Arabic and Polish.

The sound integration of GALATEAS’s infrastructure with current digital content systems will be achieved by coupling statistical and natural language processing techniques with existing information retrieval systems using a web services based framework.

LangLog
An insight into your customer’s queries

The GALATEAS project developed GALATEAS LangLog, a powerful tool that helps organizations understand their customer’s needs by analyzing what their customers are searching for.

LangLog extracts meaning out of the countless search episodes recorded in the organization’s Web server’s log files.

The organization can explore LangLog’s analyses using AWStats, JPivot, QlikView, VuFind, or through LangLog’s Web service.

The GALATEAS consortium provides LangLog services free of charge. You are welcome to contact us for any inquiry.

Vegetarians and Acne

acneNow, nevertheless, it appears that diet plan may, without a doubt, impact acne. If you are having outbreaks, nevertheless, take into consideration changes to your diet regimen to identify whether meals is an aspect.
Zinc

Dr. Rudolph Ballentine, supervisor of the Facility for Holistic Medication in New York City, states acne might be an indication of zinc shortage, which is specifically typical in vegetarians. To guarantee ample zinc, boost your consumption of zinc-rich meals, such as tofu, grains, seeds as well as nuts as well as difficult cheeses.
Milk Products

Consuming high quantities of dairy products could slow down food digestion as well as aggravate the skin. Attempt lowering the quantity of milk in your diet plan. If you are worried regarding not obtaining sufficient calcium, consume huge quantities of leafy eco-friendlies and also soy items.

Refined Meals

A vegan diet regimen does not equate to a healthy and balanced diet plan. The research revealed that changing a diet plan high in refined meals with a diet regimen high in healthy protein as well as reduced glycemic meals– such as entire grains, whole-wheat noodles as well as fruit– resulted in lowered acne.

Screen Your Diet plan

It will certainly take time, as well as test and also mistake, to establish if particular meals in your vegan diet regimen induce your acne. Beginning by consuming zinc-rich meals as well as modest degrees of fiber, reducing milk, raising healthy protein and also doing away with fatty, high-sugar refined meals.
Seek advice from a Medical professional

Consult your medical professional if you make any kind of transformations to your diet regimen or if you are brand-new to the vegan diet plan. Your medical professional might suggest crucial vitamins or day-to-day supplements. Consult your medical professional if your acne aggravates or lingers.

The Implementation Approach

The main goal of GALATEAS is to assemble a set of innovative technologies in order to derive a simple and cost effective solution to the challenges raised by multilingual query log analysis and query translation.

To achieve that, GALATEAS proposes the development of a system based on the following three basic building blocks.

The log analysis subsystem: it implements the LangLog service by providing language based log analysis;
The MT training subsystem: It performs machine translation training based on received query logs;
The query translation subsystem: It implements the QueryTrans service and translates queries into several languages by using the appropriately trained MT system.

The implementation approach is further described in the WP sections

  • WP2 – Language Resources
  • WP3 – Log Analysis
  • WP4 – Algorithms Tuning
  • WP5 – Machine Translation for Queries
  • WP6 – Optimization
  • WP7 – Evaluation
  • WP8 – Business
  • WP9 – Dissemination

Innovation in Query Log Analysis

Contrary to mainstream offerings in the field, GALATEAS services will not consider standard structured information of web logs (e.g. click rate, visited pages, user’s paths inside the document tree) but the information contained in queries from the point of view of language interpretation.

Making sense of short queries and translating them into conceptual units will enable federation administrators and managers to answer questions such as: “What are the topics that are most commonly searched in my collection, in a given language?”; “How do these topics relate to my catalogue?”; “What named entities (people, places) are most popular among my users?”.

Innovation in Query translation

From the point of view of machine translation GALATEAS will investigate statistical machine translation technologies with the objective of providing meaningful results for short, decontextualised texts with little syntactic structure, as in the case of queries to search engines.

GALATEAS users

Indirect “users” of GALATEAS services are information seekers, who would benefit from improved, cross lingual, search services. However, GALATEAS services are not provided directly to end users but to administrators and managers of digital content federations and search engines. Thus, GALATEAS targets a high end B2B market where customers will be mostly represented by organizations managing middle and large sized federations of contents. The project will serve the following needs:

  • Need for federation managers to understand what users are looking for, irrespective of the contents they actually access.
  • Need for content providers to understand how the collection should be extended.
  • Need for library administrators to understand the categories in the catalogue that fit more/less the desiderata of final users.
  • Need for library managers to understand the behaviours of their users.
  • Need for all the above roles to provide cross language information retrieval in a seamless way, without changing anything in the way in which documents are indexed and managed.
