3 digital humanities projects get high-power assist

Three digital humanities projects have been awarded grants through the U.S. National Endowment for the Humanities/Department of Energy Humanities High Performance Computing program. The grants provide computer time on DOE's high performance machines, along with training and support. See the announcement by NEH's Brett Bobley. (Thanks to Gabriel Bodard.) The grantees are:

  • The Perseus Digital Library at Tufts University, for "Large-Scale Learning and the Automatic Analysis of Historical Texts"
  • The University of California, San Diego, for "Visualizing Patterns in Databases of Cultural Images and Video"
  • The Institute for Advanced Technology in the Humanities at the University of Virginia, for "High Performance Computing for Processing and Analysis of Digitized 3-D Models of Cultural Heritage"

At least Perseus is OA; see our past posts. I can't find much else about the other two.
