Studying interdisciplinarity

frederico-nanniFrederico Nanni was not always a text miner. He actually started out as a historian and then switched to digital humanities. During his PhD, he developed a method to detect interdisciplinary research, based on scientific abstracts. Now, he finds text mining fascinating and thinks more historians should learn how to do it.

Text and data mining is important to different scientific communities, but what do these different user communities need to mine succesfully?  One of the aims of workpackage 4 of the OpenMinTeD project is to collect these requirements. This was done using  a combination of methods, including online surveys and focus groups. The results are summarized in the  ‘White paper on OpenMinTed Community Requirements’ that was finished last week.
