Coleen Holloway and Emanuele Sigismondi from University of Bologna (History and Oriental Studies) used the ALCIDE plaform to study the concepts of "people" and "multitude" during their internship in our group at Fondazione Bruno Kessler. This talk will summarise their findings and provide insight into how to use digital technologies to carry out cultural studies.

Title: Considerations about Uniqueness and Unalterability for the Encoding of Biographical Data in Ontologies

La società della conoscenza ci presenta ogni giorno una realtà traboccante di dati, suoni e immagini.Per indagare e rappresentare questa grande quantità d’informazione, la ricerca scientifica utilizza sempre più spesso delle tecnologie dotate di interfacce che amplificano la nostra capacità di vedere, sentire e comprendere. Parallelamente, la composizione musicale dei nostri giorni cerca di raccontare il mondo che ci circonda utilizzando la tecnologia per tradurre dati, suoni e immagini in partiture strumentali, composizioni elettroniche e opere multimediali.
