Join the Library, Educational Technology Services, Digital Humanities at Berkeley, the D-Lab, the Arts and Humanities Division, and Research IT for a morning mixer. We will provide a brief overview of our services for digital researchers in the humanities and offer drop-in consultations. Upcoming opportunities for training and funding will also be discussed. This event will be held in the new Academic Innovation Studio, a space where faculty can come together to discuss teaching and learning innovation. Coffee and bagels will be served.
Our Text Thresher software will enable digital humanities researchers to enlist the help of crowd workers and volunteers so they can scale-up traditional ‘content analysis’ projects to identify and extract complex information from thousands (or even millions) of documents and/or web pages.
