IDEAA: Issue-Driven European Arena Analytics is a project funded by the European Commission Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The project started in July 2018 for a duration of two years. Its purpose is to allow citizens to easily explore the trove of publicly available data with the aim of building a viewpoint on specific issues. Its main strengths are: supply users with succinct and meaningful knowledge with respect to the issue they are interested in; allow users to interact with the provided knowledge to refine their information need and advance understanding; suggest interesting or unexpected aspects in the data and support the comparison of knowledge discovered from different data sources. IDEAA is inspired by human-to-human dialogues, where questions are explorative, possibly imprecise, and answers may be a bit inaccurate but suggestive, conveying an idea that stimulates the interlocutor to further questions.
