MCML Meets Humanities 2023 Workshop

Organized by MCML Researcher Carina Geldhauser

   16.10.2023 - 17.10.2023

   Hochschule für Philosophie München

Machine learning algorithms and data science techniques are getting increasingly popular among researchers in the humanities („Digital humanities”). In this workshop, we aim to bring together students and young researchers working in mathematics, computer science, the humanities and cultural history, to learn about state-of-the-art tools, both those readily designed with a specific use in the humanities in mind, and novel research, which could have a potential usecase in the digital humanities.

The programme consists of keynote talks on monday and hands-on workshops on tuesday.
