How big data, digitization, and automation are expanding possibilities for humanities research

How are humanist researchers approaching the gathering and accessibility of vast amounts of data? And are researchers in the humanities going a little too far in relying on automation? We’ll tackle those questions – plus explore the historic and remarkable digitization of the Slave Voyages project – with Dr. John Mulligan, a professor in the Center for Research Computing and the Humanities Research Center at Rice University in Houston. Dr. Mulligan helps humanists make the most of Rice’s IT infrastructure and the latest technologies to help their big ideas go bigger and faster.

Dr. Mulligan recently won an Oracle Excellence Award in the Eureka category, which honors the top global researchers working with Oracle Cloud infrastructure, winning the award for his historic and remarkable work on the Slave Voyages project.
