Development of automated classifier and field-specific interface platform for accessing up-to-date global mobility compliance requirements

The Canadian Employee Relocation Council (CERC) is Canada’s leading authority on employee relocation and whose goal is to provide leadership, services and assistance to members enabling them to effectively serve relocated families by addressing issues that impact workforce mobility both domestically and internationally. Building on the previous collaboration, Seneca, CERC, and the IBM Center for Advanced Studies are developing a web portal and automated classifier to provide companies with up-to-date compliance and travel information for employee relocation. The research teams will be creating an easily accessible web portal that can provide up-to-date mobility compliance information from a knowledge-base and links to regulatory websites, including automated alerts if there are changes. The second task is to ensure that this repository of information stays up to date by creating an intelligent information system that brings in newly published documents and automatically classifies and tags documents with the relevant global mobility compliance areas. Together, these pieces will provide Canadian companies and CERC members with a unique mechanism to access recent information relating to global mobility, saving time, money, and reducing difficulty in relocating employees between countries.
