University of Deusto

The University of Deusto is a private university founded by the Society of Jesus in 1886. It has two campuses in Spain, one in Bilbao and the other in San Sebastián, in addition to facilities in Madrid. 15,000 students attend the institution.

The terms of the spiritual exercises explained and enriched

Each concept developed in the writings of the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola can be consulted in digital format through the new version of the Ignatian Dictionary developed by GNOSS for the University of Deusto. The cognitive intelligence engine created exploits a questionable knowledge graph, which allows linking bibliographic material associated with the teachings within the texts of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and translating it into different languages.


Ignatian knowledge scalable, classifiable and associated

The project is the result of a methodical effort to make Ignatian knowledge something scalable, classifiable and easily associated so that each search is enriched and makes more sense. This work aims that the wealth of the Ignatian tradition can be known and consulted worldwide, regardless of language barriers. The launch version of the dictionary has 100 terms extracted from the book Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and are enriched with:

  • Original terms from manuscripts
  • References associated with the original texts of the Spiritual Exercises
  • Translation into nine languages ​​(Spanish, English, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Basque, Mandarin and Latin)
  • Contextual classifications of each concept

This dictionary is designed to evolve and will be updated in blocks of 100 concepts periodically until all the texts of the Saint are completed since the Jesuit order was created in 1540 and includes the 35 congregations. The project promoted by the Jesuit community hopes to carry out this same exercise in 20 more languages ​​that will be added to the search engine developed by GNOSS.
