The Digital Humanities Lab (DHLab) is an inter-institutional research group connecting digital humanities research across the three institutes of the KNAW Humanities Cluster. The lab is focused on advancing humanities research through digital methods for which they bring together expertise from humanities, computational linguistics, social science and semantic web. Since its inception, DHLab has worked on automatically extracting information from text archives, improving historical image classification, and mapping online debates using language and Semantic web technology, and network analysis.
