Pierre Levy's curator insight, April 24, 2013 11:43 AM

he use of computational methods in the humanities is growing rapidly, with the increasing quantities of born-digital primary sources (such as emails, social media) and the large-scale digitisation programmes applied to libraries and archives. This has resulted in a range of interesting applications and case studies, and at the same time highlights the interpretative issues raised by applying such “hard” methods for answering subjective questions in the humanities.

Big data needs people, leaders and real-time analytics: A Structure:Data 2013 recap

A few trends emerged in more than 30 talks at this year’s GigaOM Structure:Data conference in New York on March 20-21. The big one: people play a crucial part in the big data equation.

It all starts with a human question. Before machines generate answers, employees from many departments should feel empowered to ask good questions of data, said John Sotham, vice president of finance at BuildDirect.

Beyond questions, humans need to decide which algorithms to employ and which data to use to answer questions, said Scott Brave, founder and chief technology officer of Baynote.

In data science, machine use algorithms to make decisions with clean data for the sake of prediction and optimization, said Sean Gurley, chief technology officer of Quid. But in “data intelligence,” humans “create, change and shape the world we’re in” using small sets of messy data, he explained.

"One of the central questions that we explored was why philosophy seems to be less visibly engaged in digital humanities"

Digital humanities - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The digital humanities is an area of research, teaching, and creation concerned with the intersection of computing and the disciplines of the humanities. Developing from the field of humanities computing, digital humanities embraces a variety of topics ranging from curating online collections to data mining large cultural data sets. Digital Humanities currently incorporates both digitized and born-digital materials and combines the methodologies from the traditional humanities disciplines (such as history, philosophy, linguistics, literature, art, archaeology, music, and cultural studies), as well as social sciences [1] , with tools provided by computing (such as data visualisation, information retrieval, data mining, statistics, text mining) and digital publishing.

Digital humanities scholars use computational methods either to answer existing research questions or to challenge existing theoretical paradigms, generating new questions and pioneering new approaches. One goal is to systematically integrate computer technology into the activities of humanities scholars,[2] such as the use of text-analytic techniques; GIS; commons-based peer collaboration; interactive games and multimedia in the traditional arts and humanities disciplines like it is done in contemporary empirical social sciences.

Another goal is to create scholarship that is more than texts and papers. This includes the integration of multimedia, metadata and dynamic environments. An example of this is The Valley of the Shadow project at the University of Virginia or the Vectors Journal of Culture and Technology in a Dynamic Vernacular at University of Southern California.

La Netnografía: Un Método de Investigación en Internet

La Netnografía: Un Método de Investigación en Internet | Derivas digitales | Scoop.it

La netnografía se presenta como un nuevo método investigativo para indagar sobre lo que sucede en las comunidades virtuales, mas propiamente de lo que acontece en Internet. El método deviene de la aplicación de la etnografía al estudio del ciberespacio. Su pretensión transita por erigirse como ciencia de lo que ocurre en la red de redes, esta pretensión, reclamada por toda disciplina emergente, aún es difusa; se presenta más como una técnica de investigación de las vivencias en los espacios virtuales. Sus orígenes se sitúan en los Estados Unidos, su aplicación actual mas evidente es la expresada por el Marketing, en los estudios de mercado.

En estos tiempos de hibridación, podemos asistir a la adopción de métodos de otras disciplinas, como el marketing digital o el periodismo de datos, para la investigación en ciencias sociales o humanidades. Las posibilidades van mucho más allá de la investigación de mercados, pues las conversaciones que se producen actualmente en la red son cada vez más variadas. En un estudio reciente, la ONTSI descubría que los usuarios de Internet (53,6%) manifiestan más interés en los asuntos políticos que los que no lo son (34,8%) - http://www.ontsi.red.es/ontsi/es/estudios-informes/estudio-de-la-demanda-y-uso-de-gobierno-abierto-en-espa%C3%B1-edici%C3%B3n-2013. Y ésto es sólo un ejemplo de cómo se configuran las nuevas comunidades online.

What can media studies bring to Digital Humanities ?

Pierre Levy's curator insight, March 8, 2013 4:35 PM

Instead, I urge us to size the opportunity to draw on those qualities at which media studies excels — the ontology of the image, a nuanced understanding of indexicality, an aliveness to the variegations and ambiguities of spectatorship, to name a few — and to ask what they can bring to the digital humanities. We will, of course, fail to find answers, but that is, maddeningly and inevitably, the point

Digital humanities and media studies: staging an encounter | Miriam Posner's Blog

Digital humanities and media studies: staging an encounter | Miriam Posner's Blog | Derivas digitales | Scoop.it

In 2000, the media scholar and digital humanities practitioner Johanna Drucker sat on a panel at SUNY Albany with Jacques Derrida. They were there to discuss digital media, but something totally unexpected happened: failure. Derrida was “unable,” writes Drucker, “to get a purchase on digital media.”1

The problem was not Derrida, but theory itself. Derrida made his observations at a remove, pronouncing at a distance on the changes wrought by digital technology. “This will not do,” Drucker declares, not even for one of the greatest theorists of our time. We must theorize digital technology through critical engagement with the medium itself, through making and breaking and building and reflecting. Pressing the humanistic against the digital, acknowledges Drucker, we fail and fail and fail, and “what is revealed in the processes is not what the machine does not know — but what we have not, until this exercise, been ourselves able to see.”

L’usage des outils informatiques en analyse des données qualitatives - [Adjectif]

L’usage des outils informatiques en analyse des données qualitatives - [Adjectif] | Derivas digitales | Scoop.it
La Recherche Qualitative constitue un type de recherche en pleine évolution et elle a été métamorphosée par les technologies informatiques.

Pierre Levy's curator insight, March 11, 2013 2:57 PM

Le terme d’Analyse Qualitative désigne tout processus technique ou intellectuel pour traiter, manipuler, explorer et interpréter des données issues d’une Recherche Qualitative dans le but d’identifier des séquences, repérer des modèles, comprendre des processus, former des catégorisations ou des classes d’objets et émettre des hypothèses et des conjectures concernant les aspects (sujets, objets ou événements) du monde en question. L’analyse des données qualitatives est souvent plus intuitive et moins systématique que lorsqu’il s’agit de données quantitatives. Le problème de l’analyse des données qui proviennent de la recherche qualitative constitue un de plus cruciaux points de cette approche. À la différence de la recherche quantitative, la recherche qualitative ne suit pas l’approche scientifique basée sur la méthode hypothético-déductive.
