How do we tell the story of humanities as the essence of understanding humankind in all its aspects and bring it back to the table as an equal partner of science? Seeking an answer to this question, this webinar (delivered as part of the DARIAH Friday Frontiers series) presents the scope and dissemination of the Queens of Humanities campaign that ran in 2022, led by OPERAS-PL. Its purpose was to promote innovative humanistic approaches and show their relevance in today’s world.
OpenCV is a very popular, free and open source software system used for a large variety of computer vision applications. This article is intended to help you get started in experimenting with OpenCV using an example of face detection in images as a case study.
This workshop, focussing on "Spatial data medieval to modern", is the first of a series of workshops from the NOS-HS project "Linking, Building, and Sustaining Humanities Digital Spatial Infrastructures for Research in the Nordic Countries". The main aims of this workshop were to define key concepts (spatial infrastructures, Linked Open Data, metadata, ontology), outline major challenges in the field, and to provide an opportunity to share experiences of addressing the issues in individual and national projects across the Nordic countries.

In this lecture from the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ADCH-CH), Björn Ommer discusses Visual Analytics's concern of how to teach machines to enable visuals to speak for themselves. Pointing out the current inadequacy of research tools in the humanities, Ommer discusses questions such as "How would research in the humanities benefit if computers could handle images just as competently as they presently process text?"
In this lecture from the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ADCH-CH), Jan Willem Tulp gives an overview of data visualisation as a type of data representation.

In this lecture from the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ADCH-CH), Keith Baker addresses the Digital Humanities dimensions of two projects ('Writing Rights' and 'Revolutionizing Revolution') against the academic background at Stanford. This lecture gives special attention to exploring the possibilities of digital archives as well as visualisation in the field of history.
The training session is dedicated to Visual Data Discovery in the Social Sciences and Humanities and shows how the GoTriple platform will support exploring research topics with visual search. The added value of knowledge maps and streamgraphs for research discovery are also examined.
This video features Geoffrey Rockwell, Professor of Philosophy and Humanities Computing at the University of Alberta, Canada and Stéfan Sinclair, Associate Professor of Digital Humanities at McGill University. Their discussion involves text visualisation within Digital Humanities, thus emphasising, that visualisation is not the end product, but an intellectual process of thinking and interpreting text.
