The aim of the course is to introduce digital humanities and to describe various aspects of digital content processing. The practical aims consist of introducing current data sources, annotation, pre-processing methods, software tools for data analysis and visualisation, and evaluation methods.
Currently, we identified that students are somewhat aware of digital humanities but it is difficult for them to dive in and, mainly, to anticipate what they should learn for their future research. A more detailed goal of this course is to present some current projects, show the datasets and technologies behind, and encourage students to explore the datasets and use the technologies on data they already know. A high level goal is to set the knowledge of the technologies and available datasets into the research iteration loop (create hypotheses -> design instruments -> collect data -> analyze and evaluate).
