Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to describe the creation and exploitation of a historical corpus in an attempt to contribute to the preservation and availability of cultural heritage documents.

Design/methodology/approach

At first, the digitization process and attempts to the availability and awareness of the books and manuscripts in a historical library in Greece are presented. Then, processing and exploitation, taking into account natural language processing techniques of the digitized corpus, are discussed.

Findings

In the course of the project, methods that take into account the state of the documents and the particularities of the Greek language were developed.

Practical implications

In its present state, the use of the corpus facilitates the work of theologians, historians, philologists, paleographers, etc. and in the same time, prevents the original documents from further damage.

Originality/value

The results of this undertaking can give useful insights as for the creation of corpora of cultural heritage documents and as for the methods for the processing and exploitation of the digitized documents which take into account the language in which the documents are written.

Abstract

Purpose

Data providers have been increasingly publishing content as linked data (LD) on the Web. This process includes guidelines (i.e. good practices) to publish, share, and connect data on the Web. Several people in different areas, for instance, sciences, medicine, governments and so on, use these practices to publish data. The LD community has been proposing many practices to aid the publication of data on the Web. However, discovering these practices is a costly and time-consuming task, considering the practices that are produced by the literature. Moreover, the community still lacks a comprehensive understanding of how these practices are used for publishing LD. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to investigate and better understand how best practices support the publication of LD as well as identifying to what extent they have been applied to this field.

Design/methodology/approach

The authors conducted a systematic literature review to identify the primary studies that propose best practices to address the publication of LD, following a predefined review protocol. The authors then identified the motivations for recommending best practices for publishing LD and looked for evidence of the benefits of using such practices. The authors also examined the data formats and areas addressed by the studies as well as the institutions that have been publishing LD.

Findings

In summary, the main findings of this work are: there is empirical evidence of the benefits of using best practices for publishing LD, especially for defining standard practices, integrability and uniformity of LD; most of the studies used RDF as data format; there are many areas interested in dissemination data in a connected way; and there is a great variety of institutions that have published data on the Web.

Originality/value

The results presented in this systematic review can be very useful to the semantic web and LD community, since it gathers pieces of evidence from the primary studies included in the review, forming a body of knowledge regarding the use best practices for publishing LD pointing out interesting opportunities for future research.

Abstract

The authors undertook a tour of Greek libraries in the Spring of 1990 in order to present a report to their sponsors (the British Council and the Greek Ministry of Education) on the possibilities for, and the problems associated with the application of information technology in Greek public libraries. The paper provides an overview of the general framework (administrative, legal and financial) within which the different library sectors operate in Greece. It also includes an introduction to the state of professional education and development. The problems which hamper the increased use of information technology are outlined and prospects for future developments are discussed.

Abstract

Purpose

The current industrial revolution is powered by data, which is also referred as Industry 4.0. The Industry 4.0 has attracted significant attention from academia and the industry professionals. The supply chain integration (SCI) has played a significant role in enhancing supply chain performance and organizational performance. This study explores the relationship between Industry 4.0 and SCI via an extensive literature review to understand the various levels of integration with the supply chain processes and to identify missing links, through a framework, and suggest further research directions.

Design/methodology/approach

In this paper, we have used systematic literature review approach to identify the building blocks of the conceptual framework, which is the main contribution of the present study. We have used Scopus database to search literature using keywords.

Findings

The study offers some interesting insights that may help scholars to advance theoretical debates. Moreover, the study also provides interesting direction to the practitioners engaged in supply chain management in data-driven environment. In this study, we have proposed a conceptual framework for the adoption of Industry 4.0 and SCI.

Research limitations/implications

In this study we have proposed a conceptual framework. However, the framework is yet to be empirically tested. Hence, we caution readers to evaluate the findings of the present study in context to its limitations. This is an attempt to develop a conceptual framework which may be tested using longitudinal data.

Originality/value

The present work helps in integrating two independent subjects', i.e. Industry 4.0 and SCI. The theoretical framework presented here integrates Industry 4.0 and SCI which can be useful to the practitioners and policymakers engaged in implementing Industry 4.0.

Abstract

Purpose

The use of AI for operations management, with its ability to evolve solutions, handle uncertainty and perform optimisation continues to be a major field of research. The growing body of publications over the last two decades means that it can be difficult to keep track of what has been done previously, what has worked, and what really needs to be addressed. Hence, the purpose of this paper is to present a survey of the use of AI in operations management aimed at presenting the key research themes, trends and directions of research.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper builds upon our previous survey of this field which was carried out for the ten‐year period 1995‐2004. Like the previous survey, it uses Elsevier's Science Direct database as a source. The framework and methodology adopted for the survey is kept as similar as possible to enable continuity and comparison of trends. Thus, the application categories adopted are: design; scheduling; process planning and control; and quality, maintenance and fault diagnosis. Research on utilising neural networks, case‐based reasoning (CBR), fuzzy logic (FL), knowledge‐Based systems (KBS), data mining, and hybrid AI in the four application areas are identified.

Findings

The survey categorises over 1,400 papers, identifying the uses of AI in the four categories of operations management and concludes with an analysis of the trends, gaps and directions for future research. The findings include: the trends for design and scheduling show a dramatic increase in the use of genetic algorithms since 2003 that reflect recognition of their success in these areas; there is a significant decline in research on use of KBS, reflecting their transition into practice; there is an increasing trend in the use of FL in quality, maintenance and fault diagnosis; and there are surprising gaps in the use of CBR and hybrid methods in operations management that offer opportunities for future research.

Originality/value

This is the largest and most comprehensive study to classify research on the use of AI in operations management to date. The survey and trends identified provide a useful reference point and directions for future research.
