eLexicography: Between Digital Humanities and Artificial Intelligence
Lexicography is currently embracing rapid change as the traditional methods of publishing dictionaries are replaced by the ubiquity of lexical information on the Web. Furthermore, the application of computational techniques to the process of lexicography are revolutionizing how dictionaries can be constructed. In this context, the recently started ELEXIS project aims to develop a new infrastructure for electronic lexicography across Europe, that builds a virtuous cycle of lexicography where lexicographic resources are linked across languages, in order to build improved natural language processing tools, which can then aid in the construction of novel resources and retro-digitization of dictionaries, thus driving the cycle. The project is naturally multilingual covering 15 European countries and has a strong interest in driving lexicography for under-resourced and minoritized languages.



Friday, 07 Dec, 9.00 to 17.00 (full day)
Developing biographical data projects using open innovation methods and practices
In this workshop we will focus on the critical role that collaborative project design, planning and decision-making can play in DH projects. Taking the transformation, exploration, and curation of biographical knowledge–in its journey from the analog to the digital–as our core concern, we will use Open Innovation (OI) and Design Thinking (DT) methods to enable “hybrid forums” for transdisciplinary problem-solving in biographical research. While we recognize that OI planning and related approaches are inspired in part by the urgency and goal-driven nature of the private-sector, we will demonstrate that DH practitioners can adapt these without any redirection of their fundamental values or purposes, and indeed they stand to gain a great deal from the focus on creative collaboration. By offering participants the opportunity to look at biographical (DH) projects as change management processes in a digital transformation setting, our DT approach will help participants think beyond the technical issues of biographical DH project management, and consider the social and intellectual processes of this digital transformation. Serving as an example and in collaboration with Dimmons and DH@UVa, the Austrian team of the PROVIDEDH project will interactively work out and analyse context-related User Stories.
