Job Knowledge Base (JKB) hosts jobs data collected from the web (as result of IO3). The JKB is based on the KnowAge open source data platform (promoted by ENG) and  will benefit from the Job Knowledge Analysis Engine and Visualization APIs provided as libraries in the IO3. This IO is a software development activity and will form the complete and final project software prototype. This task will start from the project beginning and will be finished at the end of the project, with an alpha release at M12 and a fully fledged Beta at M18.Start: 01.09.2018 End: 31.08.2021 IO4-ProgressDownload Diskow-IO4-resultsDownload

This IO covers development of methods for extracting job-related information from websites. The goal of tasks in the frame of this IO is to analyze the content of job postings, other job-related textual data and information about job seekers, to detect topics within them and to feed into the JKB. This will have multiple applications: (1) Grouping similar job openings (2) Finding duplicate job openings (3) Automatically generating a hierarchical categorization of jobs (4) Matching job seeker skills to job openings. In addition, this IO aims at extending multiple visualization methods for the various prediction results and search tasks developed…

IO2 report is broadly addressing two main tasks of the DISKOW project: identification of potential data sources and evaluating them with the proposed schema of IO1. Hence, the first part of the report mostly focused on the identification and classification of different online data sources. This report has classified the job portals into three categories: global job portals, European job portals, and local country-specific job portals. This report has explored multiple existing job portals. Next, this report has tried to identify the most relevant and accessible data sources for developing JKB. Subsequently, DISKOW project partners are contacting these job portals…

This IO covers the modeling and meta-modeling of the Job Knowledge (JK) as a theoretical and conceptual part of the DISKOW project. Accordingly, this report provides the required terminology for the project, describes the structure and ontology of the JK in detail, and demonstrates the hierarchical architecture of it. With an aim to provide a standard and extensible JK model which can be integrated in a wide variety of tools and software technologies, we have adopted an existing ontology for job knowledge from schema.org and extended it with additional properties following the best practices laid out with respect to linked…

Multiplier Event in Rome

Objective: The aim of the DISKOW Multiplier Event in Rome was to present our substantial progress with respect to the project Intellectual Outputs to a wide audience consisting of relevant stakeholders and other organizations. The multiplier event brought together important stakeholders of the project such as for example migrants in Valverde (Italy), relevant industry stakeholders and representatives of related projects and of the associated partner FSOP (Fondazione per lo Sviluppo dell´Oltrepó Pavese), Activities: The goal of the morning session is to introduce the DISKOW project to a larger audience, including guests from Valverde, providing the project context, goals and discuss…

The meeting was held on November 19th, 2019 and was useful to discuss the progress of the project, make decisions for future steps to be taken face to face. During the meeting the project partners discussed how best to manage the next multiplier event hosted by ENG at its headquarters in Rome.

Requirement Specification Meeting in PALERMO

Engineering Ingegneria Informatica hosted at its Palermo branch the first Italian project meeting. The meeting was held on 12th – 13th June 2019 with the aim to permit to the project members to have face to face discussions about progress of Modeling & Meta-Modeling of Job Knowledge for Labor Market, Identification & Analysis of Data Sources in the European Labor Market, how to create a well-structured data as output of the Crawling and the customization for the Job Knowledge Base (JKB) data model and to discuss about next technical project steps. At the same time as the technical discussions, topics…
