Text mining tools for Digital Humanities @ CMB

This workshop will take place on Dec 18, 2013, from noon to 4pm in the Georg-Simmel-Raum at Centre Marc Bloch. Its objective is to put together a community of practice around textual information extraction and visualization tools, mainly on the Berlin scene and closely related to Centre Marc Bloch.

It will cover topics such as the identification of structures in texts (named entities, relational properties, pattern detection) and to the navigational/playful approach to text visualization, featuring demonstrations of platforms such as GROBID (GeneRatiOn of BIbliographic Data), graphbrain (enabling the automatic assignment of relational statements to a variety of sources) or PulseWeb (for the phylogenetic reconstruction of news corpora) and CorTexT (socio-semantic description of scientific networks).
