Data Science Seminar: Digital Humanities – art is not only for humans anymore

View comments (2)


This Data Science Seminar focuses on digital humanities, also known as “humanities computing”, an academic discipline that explores the intersection between digital technologies and culture. New technologies, and in particular artificial intelligence, are drastically changing the nature of creative processes. Computers are playing very significant roles in creative activities such as music, architecture, fine arts, and science. As a new and emerging field, digital humanities aims to open up new areas for research in these subjects and to explore traditional questions in a different way. At the seminar, the participants will have a chance to see and hear how AI and other digital technologies play a role in art, music and poetry.
