KBR Digital Research Lab

 

KBR's Digital Research Lab serves to facilitate text and data mining research on KBR’s diverse, multilingual digitised and born-digital collections. This includes supporting the digital access of textual sources, stimulating the (re)use and research of these digital sources, data and metadata of these collections.

Through a unique long-term cooperation with the Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities, Ghent University, the Lab seeks to serve as a site of research and experimentation for providing advice and support for realising these digital projects, specifically the use of computational tools such as text and data mining, and digital humanities research on KBR’s collections. Thus it serves as a site for collaboration between KBR’s departments, as well as academia, cultural heritage institutions and the larger public to develop digital pipelines, advise on digital tools and methods, and implement artificial intelligence on the digitised and born-digital textual collections to look at the collections new ways.

Partners : The Digital Research Lab is financed by the Belgian Science Policy Office (Belspo) as part of the FED-tWIN programme, and is a long-term cooperation between KBR and the Ghent Centre for Digital Humanities, Ghent University.
