The study of the challenge that annually DFRWS proposes could be interesting. For that, the constitution of a multidisciplinar research group for solving this challenge can be very interesting for the Action.

Goal: Create multidisciplinar research groups among the participants in the Action in order to apply the mathematical, AI and AR tools in order to find a solution to the challenge of the next year.



Besides this problem, other datasets have been proposed. The goal for the next datasets is the following: Individual research groups with competences to study one or several dataset will select at least one and it will present its results during WGM3.
