Professor Siegfried Handschuh

Professor Siegfried Handschuh conducts research in the following fields: semantic technologies, information linguistics, information extraction and distributional semantics. He coordinates numerous international research and development projects funded, among others, by the EU, Science Foundation Ireland and Enterprise Ireland. He supervised research in the Digital Aristotle project which was initiated by Microsoft founder and philanthropist Paul Allen. The object was to develop a knowledgeable teacher, viz. a kind of digital Aristotle, to help pupils in their studies at school.

Meanwhile, there is a fair amount of digitalised data available in the humanities, but these data have a number of issues: they are neither consistent nor integrated. Their quality varies greatly. My goal is to make big data workable for the humanities. In the Neoclassica project, for example, we are developing new tools for researchers in art history and the humanities. Artificial intelligence could turn up entirely new contexts and relationships.
