VIDI: VIDI

VIsualising the impact of the legislation by analysing public DIscussions using statistical means

The main vision of VIDI is to enable a more efficient interaction between citizens and policy makers, by enabling better understanding of the public opinion and its evolvement regarding the proposed or adopted legislations through very advance visualization of public discussions and proactive informing about interesting discussion topics.

The goal of the project is to provide a systematic approach for processing public opinion and its impact, by fulfilling following objectives:

1 Objective: developing methods and tools for the analysis and the visualization of the citizens feedback (opinion) about a legislation, in order to enable better understanding of the ongoing discussion topics, including the senses of the discussions (positive/negative opinion about a topic)

2 Objective: developing method and tools for proactive notification of citizens about topics in ongoing discussions which are relevant for their interests, in order to deal with the information overload and focus attention of citizens only on the topics which are worth to be dealt with (in a particular situation) 

3 Objective: testing it in three large-scale use cases

EXPECTED RESULTS:

VIDI Model: Represents the platform-independent conceptualization of the visual text exploration in the eParticipation domain

VIDI Platform: The reference implementation of the VIDI model, comprising of the Crawler Subsystems, the Extraction-, the Analyze-, the Visualization- and the Notification-subsystem
  
VIDI Pilots: Evaluation of the VIDI platform within the operational (discussion) frameworks and real policy-making processes of two public administrations and one NGO related to EU or cross-regional topics
