Workshop: Introduction to NTEE

07.03.2023 (1:00 – 4:00 p.m.) / Jakobi-Passage, Room 8 and online

The workshop provides an introduction to working with the NTEE (NEISS TEI Entity Enricher) software, which was developed at the University of Rostock between 2019 and 2022 as part of the EU project "Neural Extraction of Information, Structures and Symmetries in Images". It offers the possibility of retraining BERT architecture language models to recognize user-defined textual phenomena on their own data. The resulting taggers can then be used to annotate texts and evaluate and correct them in post-processing. All of this is done within a graphical user interface: NTEE is specifically designed to make the possibilities of deep learning with BERT language models accessible to users who do not have the necessary practical knowledge.

The aim of the workshop is to provide a basic understanding of deep learning as far as it is necessary for using the tool and to demonstrate the functionality of the tool on the user interface using concrete examples.

29. IuK-Theme Day

Digital Humanities: From Conversation to Project

02.12.2022 (1:30 – 3:30 p.m.) / Jakobi-Passage, Room 9 and online

On the one hand, the Digital Humanities (DH) are a field in their own right with their own degree programmes, specialist conferences and journals. At the same time, however, they are also an interdisciplinary field of research that consists of cooperation between computer science and the humanities and their respective neighbouring disciplines. What constitutes the DH at its core is only made possible by the interdisciplinary research projects and is thus continuously fertilised.

The aim of the Theme Day is to discuss the emergence of interdisciplinary research projects in the DH. How do project partners find each other, how do ideas for joint projects emerge and how can they be launched?

Science Camp 2022

You never work alone: Research Data Management in Humanities Projects

17.11.2022 (1:20 – 1:40 p.m.) / Atrium of the Konrad Zuse Haus

Doing research in the humanities can be individual work or work in bigger teams, and it may involve the creation, management, and publication of digital data. Regardless of the number of researchers working on a project, we should all be concerned with making research data accessible. Management and accessibility of data have become fundamental aspects of research in all fields, but how exactly can we engage with this topic as researchers in the Humanities?

In her presentation at this year's Science Camp, Fernanda Alvares Freire will explain the practices of research data management in the humanities and discuss the project Uwe Johnson-Werkausgabe as an example.
