  • Computer - Assisted Processing of Intertextuality in Ancient Languages

    • Abstract: The production of digital critical editions of texts using TEI is now a widely-adopted procedure within digital humanities. The work described in this paper extends this approach to the publication of gnomologia (anthologies of wise sayings) , which formed a widespread literary genre in many cultures of the medieval Mediterranean. These texts are challenging because they were rarely copied straightforwardly ; rather , sayings were selected , reorganised , modified or re-attributed between manuscripts , resulting in a highly interconnected corpus for which a standard approach to digital publication is insufficient. Focusing on Greek and Arabic collections , we address this challenge using semantic web techniques to create an ecosystem of texts , relationships and annotations , and consider a new model – organic , collaborative , interconnected , and open-ended – of what constitutes an edition. This semantic web-based approach allows scholars to add their own materials and annotations to the network of information and to explore the conceptual networks that arise from these interconnected sayings .

  • Bioinformatics and Classical Literary Study

    • Abstract: This paper describes the Quantitative Criticism Lab, a collaborativeinitiative between classicists, quantitative biologists, and computerscientists to apply ideas and methods drawn from the sciences to the study ofliterature. A core goal of the project is the use of computational biology,natural language processing, and machine learning techniques to investigateauthorial style, intertextuality, and related phenomena of literarysignificance. As a case study in our approach, here we review the use ofsequence alignment, a common technique in genomics and computationallinguistics, to detect intertextuality in Latin literature. Sequence alignmentis distinguished by its ability to find inexact verbal similarities, whichmakes it ideal for identifying phonetic echoes in large corpora of Latin texts.Although especially suited to Latin, sequence alignment in principle can beextended to many other languages.

  • Integrated Sequence Tagging for Medieval Latin Using Deep Representation

    • Abstract: In this paper we consider two sequence tagging tasks for medieval Latin:part-of-speech tagging and lemmatization. These are both basic, yetfoundational preprocessing steps in applications such as text re-use detection.Nevertheless, they are generally complicated by the considerable orthographicvariation which is typical of medieval Latin. In Digital Classics, these tasksare traditionally solved in a (i) cascaded and (ii) lexicon-dependent fashion.For example, a lexicon is used to generate all the potential lemma-tag pairsfor a token, and next, a context-aware PoS-tagger is used to select the mostappropriate tag-lemma pair. Apart from the problems with out-of-lexicon items,error percolation is a major downside of such approaches. In this paper weexplore the possibility to elegantly solve these tasks using a single,integrated approach. For this, we make use of a layered neural networkarchitecture from the field of deep representation learning.

  • QuotationFinder - Searching for Quotations and Allusions in Greek and
           Latin Texts and Establishing the Degree to Which a Quotation or Allusion
           Matches Its Source

    • Abstract: The software programs generally used with the TLG (Thesaurus Linguae Graecae)and the CLCLT (CETEDOC Library of Christian Latin Texts) CD-ROMs are not wellsuited for finding quotations and allusions. QuotationFinder uses moresophisticated criteria as it ranks search results based on how closely theymatch the source text, listing search results with literal quotations first andloose verbal parallels last.

  • Measuring and Mapping Intergeneric Allusion in Latin Poetry using Tesserae

    • Abstract: Most intertextuality in classical poetry is unmarked, that is, it lacks objective signposts to make readers aware of the presence of references to existing texts. Intergeneric relationships can pose a particular problem as scholarship has long privileged intertextual relationships between works of the same genre. This paper treats the influence of Latin love elegy on Lucan’s epic poem, Bellum Civile, by looking at two features of unmarked intertextuality: frequency and distribution. I use the Tesserae project to generate a dataset of potential intertexts between Lucan’s epic and the elegies of Tibullus, Propertius, and Ovid, which are then aggregrated and mapped in Lucan’s text. This study draws two conclusions: 1. measurement of intertextual frequency shows that the elegists contribute fewer intertexts than, for example, another epic poem (Virgil’s Aeneid), though far more than the scholarly record on elegiac influence in Lucan would suggest; and 2. mapping the distribution of intertexts confirms previous scholarship on the influence of elegy on the Bellum Civile by showing concentrations of matches, for example, in Pompey and Cornelia’s meeting before Pharsalus (5.722-815) or during the affair between Caesar and Cleopatra (10.53-106). By looking at both frequency and proportion, we can demonstrate systematically the generic enrichment of Lucan’s Bellum Civile with respect to Latin love elegy.

  • Version Variation Visualization (VVV): Case Studies on the Hebrew Haggadah
           in English

    • Abstract: The ‘Version Variation Visualization’ project has developed online tools to support comparative, algorithm-assisted investigations of a corpus of multiple versions of a text, e.g. variants, translations, adaptations (Cheesman, 2015, 2016; Cheesman et al., 2012, 2012-13, 2016; Thiel, 2014; links: A segmenting and aligning tool allows users to 1) define arbitrary segment types, 2) define arbitrary text chunks as segments, and 3) align segments between a ‘base text’ (a version of the ‘original’ or translated text), and versions of it. The alignment tool can automatically align recurrent defined segment types in sequence.Several visual interfaces in the prototype installation enable exploratory access to parallel versions, to comparative visual representations of versions’ alignment with the base text, and to the base text visually annotated by an algorithmic analysis of variation among versions of segments. Data can be filtered, viewed and exported in diverse ways. Many more modes of access and analysis can be envisaged. The tool is language neutral. Experiments so far mostly use modern texts: German Shakespeare translations. Roos is working on a collection of approx. 100 distinct English-language translations of a Hebrew text with ancient Hebrew and Aramaic passages: the Haggadah (Roos, 2015)

  • Dealing with all types of quotations (and their parallels) in a closed
           corpus: The methodology of the Project The literary tradition in the third
           and fourth centuries CE: Grammarians, rhetoricians and sophists as sources
           of Graeco-Roman literature

    • Abstract: The Project The literary tradition in the third and fourth centuries CE: Grammarians, rhetoricians and sophists as sources of Graeco-Roman literature (FFI2014-52808-C2-1-P) aims to trace and classify all types of quotations, both explicit (with or without mention of the author and/or title) and hidden, in a corpus comprising the Greek grammarians, rhetoricians and " sophists " of the third and fourth centuries CE. At the same time, we try to detect whether or not these are first-hand quotations, and if our quoting authors (28 in all) are, in turn, secondary sources for the same citations in later authors. We also study the philological (textual) aspects of the quotations in their context, and the problems of limits they sometimes pose. Finally, we are interested in the function of the quotation in the citing work. This is the first time that such a comprehensive study of this corpus is attempted. This paper explains our methodology, and how we store all these data in our electronic card-file.

  • Preprocessing Greek Papyri for Linguistic Annotation

    • Abstract: Greek documentary papyri form an important direct source for Ancient Greek. It has been exploited surprisingly little in Greek linguistics due to a lack of good tools for searching linguistic structures. This article presents a new tool and digital platform, " Sematia " , which enables transforming the digital texts available in TEI EpiDoc XML format to a format which can be morphologically and syntactically annotated (treebanked), and where the user can add new metadata concerning the text type, writer and handwriting of each act of writing. An important aspect in this process is to take into account the original surviving writing vs. the standardization of language and supplements made by the editors. This is performed by creating two different layers of the same text. The platform is in its early development phase. Future developments, such as tagging linguistic variation phenomena as well as queries performed within Sematia, are discussed at the end of the article.

  • Editing New Testament Arabic Manuscripts in a TEI-base: fostering close
           reading in Digital Humanities

    • Abstract: If one is convinced that " quantitative research provides data not interpretation " [Moretti, 2005, 9], close reading should thus be considered as not only the necessary bridge between big data and interpretation but also the core duty of the Humanities. To test its potential in a neglected field – the Arabic manuscripts of the Letters of Paul of Tarsus – an enhanced, digital edition has been in development as a progression of a Swiss National Fund project. This short paper presents the development of this edition and perspectives regarding a second project. Based on the Edition Visualization Technology tool, the digital edition provides a transcription of the Arabic text, a standardized and vocalized version, as well as French translation with all texts encoded in TEI XML. Thanks to another Swiss National Foundation subsidy, a new research project on the unique New Testament, trilingual (Greek-Latin-Arabic) manuscript, the Marciana Library Gr. Z. 11 (379), 12th century, is currently underway. This project includes new features such as " Textlink " , " Hotspot " and notes: HumaReC.

  • From manuscript catalogues to a handbook of Syriac literature: Modeling an
           infrastructure for

    • Abstract: Despite increasing interest in Syriac studies and growing digitalavailability of Syriac texts, there is currently no up-to-date infrastructurefor discovering, identifying, classifying, and referencing works of Syriacliterature. The standard reference work (Baumstark's Geschichte) is over ninetyyears old, and the perhaps 20,000 Syriac manuscripts extant worldwide can beaccessed only through disparate catalogues and databases. The present articleproposes a tentative data model for's New Handbook of SyriacLiterature, an open-access digital publication that will serve as both anauthority file for Syriac works and a guide to accessing their manuscriptrepresentations, editions, and translations. The authors hope that bypublishing a draft data model they can receive feedback and incorporatesuggestions into the next stage of the project.

  • Deception in Speeches of Candidates for Public Office

    • Abstract: The contribution of this article is twofold: the adaptation and application of models of deception from psychology, combined with data-mining techniques, to the text of speeches given by candidates in the 2008 U.S. presidential election; and the observation of both short-term andmedium-term differences in the levels of deception. Rather than considering the effect of deception on voters, deception is used as a lens through which to observe the self-perceptions of candidates and campaigns. The method of analysis is fully automated and requires no human coding, and so can be applied to many other domains in a straightforward way. The authors posit explanations for the observed variation in terms of a dynamic tension between the goals of campaigns at each moment in time, for example gaps between their view of the candidate’s persona and the persona expected for the position; and the difficulties of crafting and sustaining a persona, for example, the cognitive cost and the need for apparent continuity with past actions and perceptions. The changes in the resulting balance provide a new channel by which to understand the drivers of political campaigning, a channel that is hard to manipulate because its markers are created subconsciously.

  • Pattern Recognition in Narrative: Tracking Emotional Expression in Context

    • Abstract: Using geometric data analysis, our objective is the analysis of narrative,with narrative of emotion being the focus in this work. The following twoprinciples for analysis of emotion inform our work. Firstly, emotion isrevealed not as a quality in its own right but rather through interaction. Westudy the 2-way relationship of Ilsa and Rick in the movie Casablanca, and the3-way relationship of Emma, Charles and Rodolphe in the novel {\em MadameBovary}. Secondly, emotion, that is expression of states of mind of subjects,is formed and evolves within the narrative that expresses external events and(personal, social, physical) context. In addition to the analysis methodologywith key aspects that are innovative, the input data used is crucial. We use,firstly, dialogue, and secondly, broad and general description thatincorporates dialogue. In a follow-on study, we apply our unsupervisednarrative mapping to data streams with very low emotional expression. We mapthe narrative of Twitter streams. Thus we demonstrate map analysis of generalnarratives.

  • Node similarity as a basic principle behind connectivity in complex

    • Abstract: How are people linked in a highly connected society' Since in many networks apower-law (scale-free) node-degree distribution can be observed, power-lawmight be seen as a universal characteristics of networks. But this study ofcommunication in the Flickr social online network reveals that power-lawnode-degree distributions are restricted to only sparsely connected networks.More densely connected networks, by contrast, show an increasing divergencefrom power-law. This work shows that this observation is consistent with theclassic idea from social sciences that similarity is the driving factor behindcommunication in social networks. The strong relation between communicationstrength and node similarity could be confirmed by analyzing the Flickrnetwork. It also is shown that node similarity as a network formation model canreproduce the characteristics of different network densities and hence can beused as a model for describing the topological transition from weakly tostrongly connected societies.

  • Data Mining on Social Interaction Networks

    • Abstract: Social media and social networks have already woven themselves into the veryfabric of everyday life. This results in a dramatic increase of social datacapturing various relations between the users and their associated artifacts,both in online networks and the real world using ubiquitous devices. In thiswork, we consider social interaction networks from a data mining perspective -also with a special focus on real-world face-to-face contact networks: Wecombine data mining and social network analysis techniques for examining thenetworks in order to improve our understanding of the data, the modeledbehavior, and its underlying emergent processes. Furthermore, we adapt, extendand apply known predictive data mining algorithms on social interactionnetworks. Additionally, we present novel methods for descriptive data miningfor uncovering and extracting relations and patterns for hypothesis generationand exploration, in order to provide characteristic information about the dataand networks. The presented approaches and methods aim at extracting valuableknowledge for enhancing the understanding of the respective data, and forsupporting the users of the respective systems. We consider data from severalsocial systems, like the social bookmarking system BibSonomy, the socialresource sharing system flickr, and ubiquitous social systems: Specifically, wefocus on data from the social conference guidance system Conferator and thesocial group interaction system MyGroup. This work first gives a shortintroduction into social interaction networks, before we describe severalanalysis results in the context of online social networks and real-worldface-to-face contact networks. Next, we present predictive data mining methods,i.e., for localization, recommendation and link prediction. After that, wepresent novel descriptive data mining methods for mining communities andpatterns.

  • A New Approach to Reporting Archaeological Surveys: Connecting Rough
           Cilicia, Visible Past and Open Context through loose coupling and 3d codes

    • Abstract: The project presents the strategy adopted by the Rough Cilicia ArchaeologicalSurvey team for publishing its primary data and reports via three potentiallytransformative strategies for digital humanities: Loose coupling of digitaldata curation and publishing platforms. In loosely coupled systems, componentsshare only a limited set of simple assumptions, which enables systems to evolvedynamically. Collaborative creation of map based narrative content. Connectingprint scholarship (book, reports, article) to online resources viatwo-dimensional barcodes (2D codes) that can be printed on paper and can callup hyperlinks when scanned with a Smartphone. The three strategies are madepossible by loosely coupling two autonomous services: Visible Past, dedicatedto web collaboration and digital-print publishing and Open Context, which is ageo-historical data archiving and publishing service. The Rough CiliciaArchaeological Survey, Visible Past, and Open Context work together toillustrate a new genre of scholarship, which combine qualitative narratives andquantitative representations of space and social phenomena. The projectprovides tools for collaborative creation of rich scholarly narratives that arespatially located and for connecting print publications to the digital realm.The project is a case study for utilizing the three new strategies for creatingand publishing spatial humanities scholarship more broadly for ancienthistorians.

  • Exploring Regional Development of Digital Humanities Research: A Case
           Study for Taiwan

    • Abstract: This study analyzed references and source papers of the Proceedings of2009-2012 International Conference of Digital Archives and Digital Humanities(DADH), which was held annually in Taiwan. A total of 59 sources and 1,104references were investigated, based on descriptive analysis and subjectanalysis of library practices on cataloguing. Preliminary results showedhistorical materials, events, bureaucracies, and people of Taiwan and China inthe Qing Dynasty were the major subjects in the tempo-spatial dimensions. Thesubject-date figure depicted a long-low head and short-high tail curve, whichdemonstrated both characteristics of research of humanities and application oftechnology in digital humanities. The dates of publication of the referencesspanned over 360 years, which shows a long time span in research materials. Amajority of the papers (61.41%) were single-authored, which is in line with thecommon research practice in the humanities. Books published by generalpublishers were the major type of references, and this was the same as that ofestablished humanities research. The next step of this study will focus on thecomparison of characteristics of both sources and references of internationaljournals with those reported in this article.

  • A Survey of Data Mining Techniques for Social Media Analysis

    • Abstract: Social network has gained remarkable attention in the last decade. Accessingsocial network sites such as Twitter, Facebook LinkedIn and Google+ through theinternet and the web 2.0 technologies has become more affordable. People arebecoming more interested in and relying on social network for information, newsand opinion of other users on diverse subject matters. The heavy reliance onsocial network sites causes them to generate massive data characterised bythree computational issues namely; size, noise and dynamism. These issues oftenmake social network data very complex to analyse manually, resulting in thepertinent use of computational means of analysing them. Data mining provides awide range of techniques for detecting useful knowledge from massive datasetslike trends, patterns and rules [44]. Data mining techniques are used forinformation retrieval, statistical modelling and machine learning. Thesetechniques employ data pre-processing, data analysis, and data interpretationprocesses in the course of data analysis. This survey discusses different datamining techniques used in mining diverse aspects of the social network overdecades going from the historical techniques to the up-to-date models,including our novel technique named TRCM. All the techniques covered in thissurvey are listed in the Table.1 including the tools employed as well as namesof their authors.

  • Clustering and Relational Ambiguity: from Text Data to Natural Data

    • Abstract: Text data is often seen as "take-away" materials with little noise and easyto process information. Main questions are how to get data and transform theminto a good document format. But data can be sensitive to noise oftenly calledambiguities. Ambiguities are aware from a long time, mainly because polysemy isobvious in language and context is required to remove uncertainty. I claim inthis paper that syntactic context is not suffisant to improve interpretation.In this paper I try to explain that firstly noise can come from natural datathemselves, even involving high technology, secondly texts, seen as verifiedbut meaningless, can spoil content of a corpus; it may lead to contradictionsand background noise.
