  • CDCS Text mining lab: Call for projects 

The Centre for Data, Culture & Society is calling for project proposals using defoe, a new text mining platform that has been developed at the University of Edinburgh. 

defoe uses high performance computing to manipulate and mine huge digitised archives, such as the British Library books and newspapers collections and the Encyclopaedia Britannica, allowing visualisation and analysis. We're looking for researchers to work with us over the next few months to explore what kinds of questions we can ask and answer using defoe and how we might develop the platform further.  FIND OUT MORE
