Beyond the Index: How can Machine Learning benefit digital editions?

The community meetings are held online using this link, usually on the first Tuesday of each month at 17:00 CET/CEST. No registration is required to attend. We warmly invite you to propose topics for the forthcoming meetings.

Upcoming community meetup on April 16, 2024

Annotation of entities has been commonplace in editions for a long time. But the common methods to do so do not acknowledge the potentials which are provided by todays technologies. In this talk I will present a modern annotation system as well as the possibilities it brings forward in combination with machine learning-based methods of information extraction. By embracing these advancements, we can significantly enhance access to the edition, transforming it into a rich source of data for researchers in fields such as history, linguistics, and sociology.

The meeting will take place on Teams.
