This public workshop will mark the end of the 2020 programme of Machine Reading the Archive, a digital methods development programme organised by Cambridge Digital Humanities with the support of the Researcher Development Fund.
It will showcase the digital archive projects created by our cohort of project participants as well as invited contribution from Federico Nanni, a leading expert in the field.
Federico Nanni is a Research Data Scientist at The Alan Turing Institute, working as part of the Research Engineering Group, and a visiting fellow at the School of Advanced Study, University of London. He completed a PhD in History of Technology and Digital Humanities at the University of Bologna focusing on the use of web archives in historical research and has been a post-doc in Computational Social Science at the Data and Web Science Group of the University of Mannheim. He also spent time as a visiting researcher at the Foundation Bruno Kessler and the University of New Hampshire, working on Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval.
Federico will offer an overview of his research at the intersection of information retrieval and digital libraries. In particular, he will focus on approaches for the automatic creation of fine-grained collections from large-scale web archives, in order to support studies in digital humanities and computational social sciences concerning specific events, entities and topics.
