The Rhodes Computational Humanities Center is a collaborative space at the intersection of data analysis, computer science, and humanities. Building on Duke University’s tradition of cross-disciplinary research and education, we foster research initiatives in the humanities and computational sciences. The projects developed at the Computational Humanities Center bring together computational and humanistic approaches to break new ground in long-standing areas of research. Our current and recent collaborations apply images processing and wavelet representation to art historical and conservation projects; harness Natural Language Processing methodologies to the ethics of consumption in pre-modern literature; and use hidden Markov Models to algorithmically compose classical music.
