Drawing on the International Digital Humanities Research Lab’s and Machine Learning Lab’s strengths in the field of data analysis and visualization, the program trains students for managing the full lifecycle of cultural data, from data acquisition and storage to statistical analysis, interpretation, and dissemination of data artifacts through visual and narrative means.
