I was asked to talk about Text and Data Mining techniques using Cultural Heritage data, since large Cultural Heritage datasets have become available through digitisation.
With a background as historian, this is one of my favorite topics, since there are so many interesting things happening in this field nowadays. The tipping point of data being available is reached and there are lots of interesting research projects using text and data mining in the humanities and social sciences at the moment.
The FutureTDM and OpenMinted projects are all about improving the uptake of TDM, and it was a great opportunity to talk about what is being done with all the digitised datasets.
