Center for Open Data in the Humanities (CODH): Activities and Future Plans
Center for Open Data in the Humanities (CODH), which was started on Apirl 1, 2016 as a preparatory office, and will be established as a center on April 2017, belongs to Joint Support-Center for Data Science Research, Research Organization of Information and Systems (ROIS). Professors from National Institute of Informatics (NII) and Institute of Statistical Mathematics (ISM) are involved in the activities of the center, collaborating with both computer scientists and humanities scholars in Japan and around the globe. The challenge of this center is where (digital) humanities meet big data, and how this encounter changes the style of research in both fields. I will introduce our activities in the past about how data-driven approach can solve questions in the humanities, and in what direction we need to move forward.
