The Digital Humanities Laboratory was founded by Professor Frédéric Kaplanin 2012. It develops new computational approaches for rediscovering the past and anticipating the future. The projects conducted at the lab range from the reconstruction of ancient cities to the algorithms influence in writing. The Venice Time Machine is the DHLAB flagship project, in partnership with Ca’ Foscari University. It aspires to digitize 1000 years of historical records and make them accessible.
The DHLAB trains a new generation of digital humanists, developing innovative educational programs as well as didactic technologies.
