DANS Colloquium on Research and Data

The DANS R&D colloquium is a meeting place for researchers, archivists and ICT specialists. Organized by DANS, its focus is on research data and what you can do with it. You are invited to participate in discussing the challenge to keep data fixed and to invent tools that can evolve fast in a landscape that is on the move. If you have done projects in preserving and reusing data we find a slot for you to share your experiences.

Theme 7 april 2015: What can you do with Open Access Hebrew Data?

Three years ago, at the 2012 Lorentz workshop Biblical Scholarship and Humanities Computing: Data Types, Text, Language and Interpretation this statement was made: The digital paradigm is on the rise in many departments of the humanities. We asked ourselves the question: what can we do to make this happen in biblical scholarship? Most importantly, the sources and the fruit of biblical scholarship should be made readily available to others: for inspiration, for checking, for application, and as the raw material for new kinds of research. In that way, the work of many sustains an ecology where results become cumulative. Here is a clear incentive to liberate scholarship from the entanglement of commercial interests, to reclaim the sources for research and education.

In the summer of 2014 a noteworthy dataset has been deposited at DANS: the text of the Hebrew Bible plus a database of linguistic annotations (urn:nbn:nl:ui:13-048i-71). This was the result of a CLARIN-NL curation and demonstrator project that also delivered SHEBANQ, a tool to view that data and to save and publish (complicated) queries on the text and annotations. The present meeting celebrates that we are on our way. A number of people involved (then and now) will tell you a story:

prof. dr. Wido Th. van Peursen (VU Amsterdam) - The Hebrew Bible as Data - A short history of the Eep Talstra Centre for Bible and Computer - the differences between hard data and soft data - how theology can be data-driven

drs. ir. Martijn Naaijer (VU Amsterdam) - Linguistic Variation in Biblical Hebrew - Periods within classical Hebrew - Testing the main hypotheses - New models for language variation - Data preprocessing

prof. dr. Nicolai Winther-Nielsen (Fjellhaug International University College, Copenhagen & Aalborg University) - Corpus based Learning of Biblical Hebrew - What is persuasive corpus-driven learning? - Bible Online Learner and Journey – From EuroPLOT to Global Learning Initiative

dr. Dirk Roorda (DANS) - Turning the ETCBC inside out - LAF-Fabric: a data preprocessing and visualisation tool. SHEBANQ: a query saver with serendipity in mind, which has won the DH2014 award for best DH tool or suite of tools. The power of github, readthedocs and ipython combined.
