Text and Data Mining Cube (175C) (Digital Humanities Lab) Capacity: 1


Want to visualize a large set of data? Curious about a set of texts, and want to know some of the key phrases or motifs before you delve in? Looking to identify new insights about the relationships between words in Shakespeare, or recognize unexpected patterns of speech in a set of interviews? Consider talking to us about a Text and Data Mining project and using our equipment!

The DHLab offers the text and data mining cube for the purpose of practicing text mining, or engaging in your own text or data mining projects. This is not restricted to projects on humanities subjects, and could include techniques such as: concordance analysis, topic modeling, or sentiment analysis.

The text and data mining cube offers two computers for you use, described below, and will eventually include a rotating set of sample data for practice or projects. This will be added to the list below as it becomes available.

You are welcome to use the text and data mining cube with or without a project, but please first book a consultation with us or drop us an email before you make a reservation.
