We have THREE resources nominated for the DH Awards 2015!
BEST DH TOOL OR SUITE OF TOOLS
ALCIDE is a web-based platform that combines advanced text processing techniques, intuitive visualisations and close/distant reading of corpora to analyze large quantities of data such as historical sources and literary works. A new system version (with new interface and new functionalities for corpus comparisons) has been released in 2015 after the first prototype was developed over 2013 and 2014.
KD goes beyond the simple extraction of the most frequent (single) keywords in a text by combining statistical measures with linguistic information, so to identify and extract a weighted list of key-phrases from English, Italian and German texts. KD is available both as a simple web application and as a software package to meet the needs of users with different levels of technical expertise, can be applied to any new domain without supervision and simply extended to cover new languages.
BEST USE OF DH FOR FUN
PAGANS is a playful activity to be performed by pairs of users in order to collect indicators concerning how people perceive artworks and how they judge their similarity through the calculation of an aesthetic affinity score. It presents an innovative approach in the application of game principles to artistic issues, meant to inform curatorial decisions with visitors point of view.
