DHLAB

Presentation

The Digital Humanities Laboratory was founded by Professor Frédéric Kaplan in 2012. It develops new computational approaches for dealing with large digital cultural objects (large corpora of texts, images and complex documents, high-resolution scanning of artefacts, buildings and entire cities) and a new understanding of digital cultures.
