Dariah.lab Poland – Together for Cultural Heritage

June 6, 2023

As in previous years, DARIAH-PL project will be presented at DARIAH Annual Event. This year, the event will take place in Budapest on June 6 – 9, 2023. The main theme is: „Cultural Heritage Data as Humanities Research Data?”

This time, there will be an entire session dedicated to the project, entitled „Dariah.lab Poland – Together for Cultural Heritage”. It will take place on June 8 at 4:00 pm and will consists of three presentations.

1. Non-invasive technologies for discovering cultural heritage

Dariah.lab’s approach to building infrastructure for source data acquisition, creating a network of local centres of competence and mobile laboratories, storing and sharing data. Using examples of interdisciplinary projects, we will show application of modern hardware infrastructure in the fields not traditionally associated with the use of advanced equipment, such as history, archaeology, ethnology or literary or linguistic sciences, etc.

2. From Music Information Retrieval to neuroscience of sound

Music is an essential part of human culture and tradition. Dariah.lab provides a computer infrastructure to support the research of (ethno)musicologists in music transcription, timbre analysis or interactive digitization of sheet music documents. We will show examples of the infrastructure as well as methods and tools for studying sound perception by humans, e.g. skin conductance, HRV or EEG

3. Harmonising cultural heritage: vocabularies, data quality and Linked Open Data

How Dariah.lab team is working towards harmonisation of Polish cultural heritage through developing workflows for processing textual resources (segmentation, extraction), improving semantic interoperability of vocabularies and fostering better organisation of knowledge bases of the main Polish providers.

Hope to see you there.
