NewsEye User Workshop 2021

Online Event, 13th April 2021

About Us

NewsEye, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, is a research project advancing the state of the art and introducing new concepts, methods and tools for Digital Humanities by providing enhanced access to historical newspapers for a wide range of users. Our tools have been developed to improve users’ capabilities to access, analyse and use the content in the digital libraries of historical newspapers.

Join In!

The 2021 NewsEye User Workshop, taking place as an online event on 13 April and coordinated by the Austrian National Library, is designed to include and interact with you, as a cross section of our target users, in using some of the key outputs and tools of the NewsEye project. The project consortium members, who have been developing these tools since 2018, will firstly present the internal workings of the project, its workflow and the different components. We will also hear from representatives from the NewsEye Digital Humanities teams of the University of Innsbruck and Montpellier groups on their case studies on Migration and Gender to add some context and content to the hands-on sessions with the tools themselves.

Tools to be used: what will we be working with?

During the workshop on 13 April afternoon, we will showcase the NewsEye Demonstrator which contains multiple outputs of the NewsEye project (article separation, named entity recognition and a personal research assistant, to name a few) and explore the tools therein in a series of set tasks from the NewsEye project teams from both the Digital Humanities and Computer Science fields!

Tasks: what can we expect to do?

Three areas of tasks and demos from practical to more analytical, as well as how to use other developed tools, will be offered:

1. Building a dataset using the NewsEye Demonstrator - creating, searching and adding documents to a dataset

2. Analysing your dataset using Personal Research Assistant - dataset investigation using a variety of tools and interpretation of the outcomes

3. Exporting the dataset and usage of external tools - how outputs from research within the NewsEye Demonstrator can be used with other visualisation or analytical tools

We look forward to welcoming you to our Workshop!
