Daniel Gomes, manager of Arquivo.pt, dedicated the award to the various teams that have worked on Arquivo.pt over the years. In the month in which Arquivo.pt marked 15 years of existence, this distinction is an excellent anniversary gift, he concluded.
The winners of the Arquivo.pt Award 2022 were announced by the Público newspaper on 22th July 2022, the official communication partner of this edition, which awarded an honorable mention to the best work based on its historical web content.
This work developed a methodology for the automatic classification of stigmatizing mental illness articles, present in Portuguese online news newspapers, using Artificial Intelligence.
For example, a news article that uses the term schizophrenia associated with a news article about political life is classified as stigmatizing. Using automated processes, this work allows to identify thousands of news items and draw the attention of the media and society to the stigmatization of mental illnesses.
The 3rd place winner received a prize of 2 000 euros and was awarded to the work “Arquivo Público”, developed by Diogo Correia and Ricardo Campos.
“Arquivo Público” is a web application focused on the contents published on the Público newspaper website over time and preserved by Arquivo.pt.
As a result, we have a web interface that allows the visualization of archived news about a specific subject and also the representation of the number of news, most frequent terms and geographical reference.
The awards were presented by the Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education, Elvira Fortunato, the President of the Board of Directors of FCT, Madalena Alves, and the representative of the media partner, the science editor of Público newspaper, Teresa Firmino.
