Information Access Seminar

Building Computational Instruments for the Humanities and Social Sciences

Friday, August 28, 2009

Clifford Lynch
Continuing and extending a discussion at last year's seminar, I'll explore some of the potential for building new computational services that can function as new instruments for the humanities and social sciences (and indeed for many other areas of investigation) and relate them to developments in text and data mining and information retrieval. I will highlight a number of recent experiments in this area. Finally, I'll frame questions about how such instruments might be deployed, and by what organizations.
