NLP and the Humanities: The Revival of an Old Liaison

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper presents an overview of some emerging trends in the application of NLP in the domain of the so-called Digital Humanities and discusses the role and nature of metadata, the annotation layer that is so characteristic of documents that play a role in the scholarly practises of the humanities. It is explained how metadata are the key to the added value of techniques such as text and link mining, and an outline is given of what measures could be taken to increase the chances for a bright future for the old ties between NLP and the humanities. There is no data like metadata!
