DISSINET in podcast DATAŘI
David Zbíral and Tomáš Hampejs talk about inquisition records as digital capta with Jan Cibulka in the Czech Radio podcast „DATAŘI“.
On 3 October, David Zbíral successfully passed the first step in the procedure towards full professorship. In his lecture for academic public, he presented the digital humanities approach towards medieval history.
He introduced DISSINET project’s original approach to data collection and the InkVisitor software, outlined several possible patterns for analysis of structured data from inquisition trials and discussed which answers can be obtained through computational methods, also mentioning possible pitfalls. The DISSINET team keeps fingers crossed for the future steps in front of scientific boards of the faculty and the university.

Great news! CASTEMO data collected in InkVisitor can now be readily outputted into Neo4j graph databases. Neo4j allows for collected data to be flexibly explored, queried, enriched, and analysed with graph tools.
