12.8.21 | Primary Sources, Computational Intelligence, and Discovering Connections Between Fields

December 8, 2021, 7-9:00 pm EST

Tom Lippincott (digital humanities, Johns Hopkins University)

Chris Cannon (english and classics, Johns Hopkins University)

Combining the depth and flexibility of human reasoning with the breadth and precision of computational intelligence creates potential for transformative empirical research spanning multiple fields. Unfortunately, symbiotic relationships between humanistic scholarship and computational research is rare, for several institutional and cultural reasons.  This seminar outlines a mode of collaboration that addresses these challenges and connects humanistic and computational research, mediated by careful attention to primary sources and the humanistic domains. Several ongoing studies from the humanities, undertaken as proof-of-concept, will illustrate the broad promise of the approach.

This talk will be held in person, hosted by Naveeda Khan within walking distance of Johns Hopkins’ Homewood campus.
