October Tech Talk: Data Computing in the Humanities

6 October 2017, various locations

Data computing in the humanities is the topic of the October national Tech Talk on Friday, 6 October, 2pm–4pm AEST (3pm–5pm AEDT).

Researchers in humanities are increasingly using computational approaches to analyse data objects such as text, painting, film and other artefacts. At the Tech Talk, three speakers will introduce their fascinating projects or applications in this area. The speakers and topics are:

• Dr Julia Miller (Australia National University) — PARADISEC: Visualising the past, present, and future of digital archiving
• Prof. Erik Champion (Curtin University) — Computing, 3D models and intangible heritage
• Prof. Hugh Craig (University of Newcastle) —Three Shakespeare questions you can only answer through computation.

If this Tech Talk is of interest to you (or you just want to hang out with some other research data folk!) then come along to one of the live-linked venues around Australia. QCIF is the host of the two Queensland hubs at UQ St Lucia and USQ Toowoomba.

The talks, from 2pm–3pm AEST, are followed by networking and discussion at the seven Tech Talk hub locations around Australia. All are welcome to join this informal event, either in person or virtually online. Please register (it's free) for catering purposes. More information | please register.

The monthly Tech Talk is an initative of ANDS, Nectar, and RDS, including nodes QCIF, Intersect, VICNode, eRSA and Pawsey.
