Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of this Special Issue on Artificial Intelligence for Digital Humanities (AI4DH) is to gather results on the interdisciplinary area of innovative technologies in the IT field—with specific reference to the methodologies, techniques, and tools related to Artificial Intelligence—applied in the field of digital humanities studies.

This Special Issue is calling submissions of novel and innovative research results on digital research tool developments with a clear reference to artificial intelligence for extracting knowledge, to the use natural language processing, as well as to the extraction of quality knowledge from textual resources, to the automatic analysis of visual and multimedia data and effective information and document retrieval that can be exploited in the field of Digital Humanities and cultural heritage. 

The Special Issue also invites submissions which concentrate on a well-founded representation of extracted knowledge and automatic reasoning to derive new knowledge; development of resources and applications according to Semantic Web and Linked Data best practices; and, in general, on the integration of metadata and semantic research in the digital humanities domain.

In addition, this Special Issue aims to emphasize the role of humanists in the learning loop, demonstrating the success and challenges of applying human interaction in a virtuous circle where they train, tune, and test machine learning models.

The Special Issue thus intends to focus on any aspect of Artificial Intelligence for digital humanities.
