In 2020, the Greek supercomputer, ARIS, supported ManyLaws with generating more than 11 million datasets now available on the portal.

As our societies continue to digitalise, with larger and larger amounts of data constantly being generated, high-performance computing (HPC), or supercomputing, has emerged as a key tool to address data-intensive tasks. Legal information published by EU Member States in their respective languages amounts to vast amounts of data that are far beyond the capacity of a simple desktop computer to analyse.

ARIS High Performance Computer supporting key ManyLaws services

Legal data and semantic annotation services through text mining are at the core of the ManyLaws project.

It is estimated that a pan-European legal database will contain more than 1 trillion words in 21 different languages, corresponding to about 10 million volumes of classical books. Moreover, another 5 000 such volumes will be included for study on a daily basis.
