Universiteit Twente

Universiteit Twente is a university which combines a strong profile in research with a strong focus on valorisation: the transfer of scientific innovation to societal realms. The Human Media Interaction group (HMI) is one of the leading research teams in the field of the use of Speech and Language Technology and Information Retrieval in Oral History. The combination of these fields makes it possible to implement search technology for collections of spoken documents (meetings, interviews, spoken stories, etc.). These access tools have been successfully implemented by HMI in various projects in collaboration with cultural heritage organisations applying the methods of oral history: Royal Library , NIOD , IIAV , Gemeente Archief Rotterdam .
