An introduction to OpenRefine, a cross-platform open source tool for cleaning messy data.
OpenRefine (previously Google Refine) is a powerful tool for working with messy data: cleaning it; transforming it from one format into another; and extending it with web services and external data.
This tutorial demonstrates the basic functionalities of OpenRefine, and will also demonstrate how to reconcile data with Wikidata. Suggestions of interesting datasets to work with are welcome!
Chair: Annet Dekker. Panelists: Lozana Rossenova • Ranjit Menon • Georgina Burnett • Mariana Ziku and more
This panel looks at cultural heritage that falls outside existing systems of preservation and sharing and seeks new practices for broader inclusion of these bodies of knowledge.
|Using Transkribus - background to the tool and demonstration
Instructor: Joseph Nockels
This workshop enables participants to use the Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) tool Transkribus, a way of rendering historical manuscript material into machine-readable printed text. It showcases how to upload document images to the platform, run automated features like line segmentation and layout/document analysis, as well as how to train an AI-enabled model to automatically transcribe text. Once a trustworthy rendition of the text is transcribed as machine-readable text, institutions and scholars can begin to make the past readable and accessible through audio software and other digital methods.
||Wake up-call for heritage at risk
Panelists: Majd Al-Shihabi • Evelin Heidel • Nassima Chahboun and more
Cultural heritage buildings, monuments and sites are increasingly exposed to major problems and threats: armed conflicts and wars, natural disasters, climate change, pollution, mismanagement and uncontrolled activities. In this session, we will explore the possibilities offered by open platforms and tools to monitor and assess these threats, and raise awareness among local communities.
