Prague Talks on Digital Humanities

Kaspar Gubler (University of Bern, Switzerland):
Digital Humanities as Data Science: Potentials and Limits

Digital humanities is an umbrella term for disciplines in the humanities that focus on research with digital resources and tools. As diverse as the disciplines are, so are their methods and approaches to digital research. For example, machine learning, network analyses or data visualisations, with which we can recognise new patterns, connections and developments in the research data. In these diverse research processes, data science, as will be shown in the presentation, can support the digital humanities by focusing on the quality, consistency and informational value of research data and thus reflecting on the potentials and limitations of digital research in the humanities at the same time.
