19. November 2020

  • 12:00-13:30 (abweichende Zeit!)
  • Prof. Javier Cha: "Digital Humanities: The Korean Trajectory"
  • In the Korean humanities, digitization and computing began in the 1960s, when Edward Wagner and Song June-ho embarked on their 35-year journey to build a database of 14,600 civil service examination degree holders. Today, an impressive collection of open-access historical archives is available to researchers. In this talk, I will explain how digital transformation has affected the study of Korean history and culture and what the South Korean experience may teach us about the digital humanities on the whole.

  • 16:15-17:45
  • Dr. Fabian Offert: "Visual Culture and Artificial Intelligence"
  • Deep artificial neural networks have radically altered the way in which computers process the visual world. In this talk, I will investigate some of the implications of this shift for the digital humanities/digital art history. Specifically, I will demonstrate imgs.ai, a visual search engine that facilitates the intuitive exploration of large image corpora. I will show how imgs.ai uses deep learning to draw connections between images, but also where it fails to account for the radical difference between human and machine vision. Finally, I will discuss why machine learning and computer vision should be considered "natural" domains of humanist inquiry, and why we thus need a new transdisciplinary field of Critical AI Studies.

7. Januar 2021 (Terminänderung!)

  • 16:15-17:45
  • Prof. Dr. Rainer Kleinertz und Dr. Christof Weiss: "Musikwissenschaft und Informatik im Dialog: Möglichkeiten der computergestützten harmonischen Analyse"

14. Januar 2021

  • 16:15-17:45
  • Silvia Gutiérrez: "Linked Open Data (LOD) for research: what is Wikidata and how can we contribute and use it?"
  • Wikidata is an open knowledge base with more than 90 million elements, available under a free license, and that can be interlinked to other open data sets. In this talk I will share the basics of this LOD platform, the way its query interface works, and some examples of how we have been using it in the last four years at our research library.

21. Januar 2021

  • 16:15-17:45
  • Dr. Maria Papadopoulou: "Adding value to ancient Greek pottery data: presenting project Lekythos"
  • Ιn this talk, I will present Lekythos. Named after the namesake ancient Greek clay vessels for oil, Lekythos aims to: first, represent knowledge in the domain of ancient Greek pottery by building a model of ancient Greek pottery concepts. Second, publish these concepts in the form of a multilingual knowledge graph (ontology). Third, publish an openly accessible electronic dictionary of the English, French, and Greek terms denoting these concepts. I will discuss how Lekythos was builtwith Tedi, a software platform for building multilingual knowledge graphs.
