Kuvaus (abstrakti)

Newspapers collect information about cultural, political and social events in a more detailed way than any other public record. In the last decades, tens of millions of newspaper pages from European libraries have been digitized and made available online. Whilst the broad public shows general interest in this historical and cultural resource, it is of crucial importance for many humanities scholars. The multi-disciplinary NewsEye project involves national libraries, humanities and social science research groups and computer science research groups to address a number of challenges in text recognition, text analysis, natural language processing, computational creativity and natural language generation; in digital newspaper research; in digital humanities; as well as in history.
