Temporal and Spatial Content Tracking
As part of the activities of Digital Humanities group in FBK, we are organizing a one-day workshop on "Digital Humanities: Current state and Future challenges". The event will include invited talks from prominent scholars and experts from the Digital Humanities area, especially those active at the intersection between humanities and human language technologies. We would like to know more about past successful experiences and ongoing projects all over Europe.
The paper "An AI-based Process for Generating Games from Flat Stories" by Rosella Gennari, Sara Tonelli and Pierpaolo Vittorini has been accepted at the 33rd Annual International Conference of the British Computer Society’s Specialist Group on Artificial Intelligence (SGAI). The work has been carried out within the Terence European project.
In recent years, temporal and spatial analysis has taken root in several closely connected areas of the humanities. The extraction of temporal information from text, e.g. from news, has become a major research topic in Human Language Technologies and has been widely used in related applications such as question answering and automatic summarization systems. Also the study and the exploitation of spatial information in history and literature has received a great deal of attention in recent years, especially thanks to the possibilities offered by geographical information systems (GIS).
