Kristoffer Laigaard Nielbo - Lecturer

Scholars of Digital Humanities have followed several distinct trends most notably Computational Humanities and DH 2.0. Concurrent with the success of data science, we have seen a third major trend emerging which is referred to as Humanities Data or Culture Analytics. While mainstream data science has little interest in the principles underlying cultural variation beyond the scope of predictive analytics, Culture Analytics seeks to uncover the fundamental properties of culture. Recognizing that big data only leads to big errors if a project starts with faulty assumptions, Culture Analytics relies heavily on humanities domain expertise in order to construct reliable and valid models of culture.
