+DS In-Person Learning Experiences

AI is playing an increasingly large role in the Digital Humanities. The use of AI throughout the humanities can accelerate research, open up new forms of investigation, and create novel approaches to interacting with data. In this IPLE we will overview how digital humanities researchers can leverage AI in their work. First, we will survey approaches, models, and applications common to AI and Digital Humanities research. Next, we'll review successful projects at the intersection of DH and AI, and discuss how these projects are shifting the landscape of what is possible within the digital humanities. Lastly, we'll review several models and architectures through case studies, to better understand how we can use AI in our own research. This session is part of the Humanities/Social Sciences +DS track, which focuses on engagements with AI for the Digital Humanities and Social Sciences. To learn more, please visit
