GEPID is aimed at developing a support technology for a social media platform based on digital preservation. The project wants to contribute to the socialization of memories through digital support, with the convenient gamification of personal and family memories.
One of the main problems detected in the digital preservation field is the lack of software tools allowing preservation actions for digital objects stored in computers such as texts, data, graphics, still and moving images, sound recordings, computer programs, etc.
Personal digital preservation is currently a chaotic handicraft process, poorly covered in the market. One of the main problems detected in the digital preservation field is the lack of software tools allowing preservation actions for digital objects stored in computers such as texts, data, graphics, still and moving images, sound recordings, computer programs, etc.
The project benefits from the asset of crowdsourcing produced by the gamification of a preservation process requiring a high degree of human involvement initially, giving way later to the preservation technology capable of developing autonomously. For this purpose GEPID makes use of the powerful and deeply rooted social media.
Therefore, gamification of the personal digital preservation solves appraisal-related problems (regarding what is important to preserve) of metadata (by managing feedback upon which information on entities, subjects, objects, actions and temporalities about the digital object is extracted). Lastly, it also solves problems of format upgrade/migration in order to prevent digital obsolescence.
We are dealing here with an innovative strategy in the field of digital preservation.
The approach uses the cloud or the methods and techniques ofartificial intelligence (AI) to enhance the integrity and accessibility of the digital content. Moreover, it also involvessocializing and integrating digital preservation tasks in the individual behavior. Thus, users themselves can add comments, organize, prioritize and preserve their own contents and make them available in the cloud which is designed not only to save and share content but also to offer intelligent functions of digital preservation.
