    Digital Humanities researchers often make use of software that helps them in the task of finding non-trivial relationships among characters in historical text. Usually, the source texts that contain such information come from OCR acquired volumes, carrying high amounts of errors within them. This work explains the development of a web platform for the task of OCR post-processing and ground-truth generation. This platform employs machine learning to predict the correct texts accurately from OCR noisy strings. The method used for this task involves transformers for character-based denoising language models. An active learning workflow is proposed, as the users can feed their corrections to the platform, generating new annotated data for re-training the underlying machine learning correction models.

    Large amounts of ancient documents have become available in the last years, regarding Argentinian history. This fact turns possible to find interesting and useful aggregated information. This work proposes the application of Natural Language Processing, Text Mining and Visualization tools over Argentinian ancient document repositories. Conceptual maps and entity networks make up the first target of this preliminary paper. The first step is the normalization of OCR acquired books of General G¨uemes. Exploratory analyses reveal the presence of manifold spelling errors, due to the OCR acquisition process of the volumes. We propose smart automatic ways for overcoming this issue in the process of normalization. Besides, a first topic landscape of a subset of volumes is obtained and analysed, via Topic Modelling tools.

    In recent years there has been a significant increase in the number and impact of damage caused by natural disasters, as well as the frequency, extent and duration of extreme weather events. In that sense, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development proposes 17 objectives through which countries will intensify their efforts to combat climate change. Among the goals is proposed to increase efforts to protect and safeguard the world's cultural and natural heritage. This article presents one of the case studies of an ongoing doctoral research that assesses the level of conservation and sustainability in cultural buildings. The case is the Museum of Contemporary Art Beato Angelico, which is located in La Plata, Argentina. The objective is to carry out environmental monitoring of the museum for a period of twelve months. This consists in the recording and analysis of environmental conditions through the continuous measurement of temperature and relative humidity. This article presents the results of the winter measurement of 2015. The spatial characteristics of the rooms and their relative location within the building are considered, it is concluded by determining the behavior of the different exhibition spaces.

    This paper presents a series of semi-supervised learning algorithms which were designed to classify words or expressions with temporal meanings. The algorithms use a set of pre-tagged temporal expressions and a set of semantic classes which were defined within a research project on the lexical coding of temporal meaning in Spanish. The algorithms in this article are mostly based on word embeddings, but they also make use of other methods. The results obtained strongly depend on the temporal classes considered, but, for some classes, results have reached 90% precision or above.

    El siguiente trabajo se constituye como una aproximación al concepto de representación desde la teoría psicoanalítica freudiana. Para ello, se harán consideraciones epistemológicas acerca de los orígenes filosóficos del término, un rastreo histórico de los diferentes modelos de aparato psíquico y un análisis metapsicológico para clasificar las distintas definiciones del concepto de representación a partir de los modelos que intentan dar explicación al origen del aparato psíquico. Cada uno de estos sistemas supone diversos tipos de inscripciones que se rigen por distintas legalidades: signo de percepción, representación-cosa y representación-palabra. Se privilegiará el modelo de la “Carta 52”, donde expone por primera vez su hipótesis acerca de la composición del aparato psíquico como un sistema de inscripciones en términos de signos. El objetivo será, por lo tanto, caracterizar estas tres formas de representación de “la cosa del mundo” tomando en cuenta sus coincidencias, diferencias y relaciones. Fundamentalmente, qué suponen en tanto inscripciones y retranscripciones en función de los intercambios al interior del psiquismo y sus relaciones con el mundo. Se fundamentará una lectura del concepto de representación enfatizando su carácter de producto resultante de la actividad simbolizante del sujeto. The following work is constituted as an approximation to the concept of representation from the Freudian psychoanalytic theory. For this, epistemological considerations will be made about the philosophical origins of the term, a historical tracing of the different models of psychic apparatus and a metapsychological analysis to classify the different definitions of the concept of representation from the models that try to explain the origin of the Psychic apparatus Each of these systems involves different types of inscriptions that are governed by different legalities: sign of perception, representationthing and representation-word. The model of “Letter 52” will be privileged, where it exposes for the first time its hypothesis about the composition of the psychic apparatus as a system of inscriptions in terms of signs. The objective will be, therefore, to characterize these three forms of representation of “the thing of the world” taking into account their coincidences, differences and relations. Fundamentally, what do they imply in both inscriptions and retranscriptions in terms of exchanges within the psyche and its relations with the world. A reading of the concept of representation will be based emphasizing its product character resulting from the symbolizing activity of the subject. Facultad de Psicología

    In this paper we propose the application of feature hashing to create word embeddings for natural language processing. Feature hashing has been used successfully to create document vectors in related tasks like document classification. In this work we show that feature hashing can be applied to obtain word embeddings in linear time with the size of the data. The results show that this algorithm, that does not need training, is able to capture the semantic meaning of words.We compare the results against GloVe showing that they are similar. As far as we know this is the first application of feature hashing to the word embeddings problem and the results indicate this is a scalable technique with practical results for NLP applications.

    The theme of this session is the Digital Humanities as a "Boundary Land" - i.e. a locus in which such objects are common. As O´Donnell argues in his paper, this aspect is one of the defining features of contemporary Digital Humanities and an important cause of its recent rapid growth. As the field grows, DH workshops, panels, and journals see increasing work by practitioners trained in more and more traditionally distinct disciplinary traditions: textual scholars, literary critics, historians, New Media specialists, as well as theologians, computer scientists, archaeologists, Cultural Heritage specialists... and geographers, physicists, biologists, and medical professionals.It is the contention of the speakers of this panel that interpersonal diversity (i.e. diversity along lines such as gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, language, economic region, etc.) is as an important element of this aspect of DH. The Digital Humanities is not only a place where different disciplines work together (and at times at odds to each other): it is also a place where different people work together and at odds in developing our field. In other words, diversity initiatives in the Digital Humanities are important not only because they let more people into our field, they are important because they change the nature of our field as its practice widens.The papers in this session each approach the issue from a different perspective. In the first paper, O'Donnell looks at the theoretical background to this understanding of diversity as a component of DH as a boundary discipline, grounding his approach in early work on interdisciplinarity and boundary work. In the second paper, Murray Ray and Bordalejo discuss the ways in which efforts to promote diversity within DH can paradoxically undermine its theoretical importance to the field, before turning to different examples of diversity´s intellectual importance. In the third paper, del Rio and González-Blanco examine the institutional and social pressures that promote and hinder dialogue among researchers in developing and developed countries and across linguistic and other boundaries before proposing new approaches in Digital Humanities that go beyond lingüistic diversity focusing on theories such as Sociology of Culture and Education and other reformulations.

    Although Digital Humanities have been defined from a discipline perspective in many ways, it is surely a field still looking for its own objects, practices and methodologies. Their development in the Spanish-speaking countries is no exception to this process and, even it is complex to trace a unique genealogy to give account for the evolving field in Spain and Latin America (Gonzalez-Blanco, 2013; Spence and Gonzalez-Blanco, 2014; Rio Riande 2014a, 2014b), the emergence of various associations in Mexico (RedDH), Spain (HDH) and Argentina (AAHD) that seek for a constant dialogue (Galina, González-Blanco and Rio Riande, 2015), and academic lab and DH center initiatives such as LINHD (Spain and Argentina), GRINUGR (Spain), Medialab USAL, LABTEC (Argentina), TadeoLab (Colombia), Elabora HD (Mexico), among others, make it clear that research has become increasingly “global, multipolar and networked” (Llewellyn Smith, et al., 2011) and that the academic field is looking for a global outreach and aims to open spaces of shared virtual work. Virtual Research Communities (VRCs) are a consequence of these changes. (Párrafo extraído a modo de resumen) Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET)
