DL Workshop 2023: Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing – Challenges in the Humanities
The humanities meet computer science to create new synergies using computer vision and natural language processing.
Aim & Scope
Historians are increasingly using technologies to evaluate digitised texts in a machine-readable way, as well as techniques from the field of natural language processing (NLP) to analyse the content and context of language in written artefacts. These techniques can be used to analyse large corpora and identify patterns. In general, however, these methods often use training data from current rather than historical data. The use of these methods can lead to biases in the historical record, incurring the risk of false inferences about history. Therefore, the methods used should be fully investigated to account for any biases. In this DL workshop, the challenges of applying computer vision and NLP techniques in the humanities, and first solutions to them, will be presented.
You can expect exciting talks from the humanities, computer vision, and natural language processing. Subject to the agreement of the speakers, the titles will be published here.
