Entities and events

Persons and organisations, and what they did or what happened to them and where, are core research objects in the humanities.

To investigate these, we need to be able to detect their mentions from text and model their representation such that we capture their complexity whilst keeping the extracted information about them manageable. The DHLab research in this theme will investigate how we can extract semantically rich elements from text along with their relationships and create rich and accessible data structures that facilitate digital hermeneutics research.
