Living with Machines at the Leeds Digital Festival
Dr. Mia Ridge gave a presentation, ‘Rethink Research, Illuminate History’ at the Leeds Digital Festival on Monday 27th April, 2020. If you’ve ever wondered why a research library wanted to work with data scientists, this talk will help explain.
Abstract: Together with the Alan Turing Institute, the British Library is using data science and digital history methods to analyse millions of historical documents and understand the impact of mechanisation in the 19th century. Dr Mia Ridge, Digital Curator for Western Heritage Collections, shares how technology can create a richer picture of our past.
