Open Discovery Engines

An open discovery engine describes a set of related open discovery services. Each open discovery service implements a specific type of analysis. This analysis is looking into the content of a digital resource and storing its findings in annotations within a discovery analysis report that is linked of the resource's Asset in the metadata repository.

An open discovery engine is hosted in the Asset Analysis Open Metadata Engine Service (OMES) running on one or more Engine Host OMAG Servers.
