On Tuesday, May 10th, for the DHAI seminar, Benoit Seguin tracked the benefits and obstacles to the use of computational methods in digital humanities through his lecture entitled Beyond the Proof-of-Concept - DHAI Methods in the Real World. In the space of Digital Humanities, Computational Methods are always used in an applied setting, driven by research questions. However, converting these research results into useful tools for researchers unfortunately rarely happens. By taking a step back on different projects he took part in as an independent engineer (large photo-archives analysis, art market price estimation, visualization of text-reuse in architecture treatises, ...). During the lecture he tried to highlight the divide between research interest and end-user interest, and came up with advice on integrating modern ML in DH projects.
