On 7th of March the DIVE+ project was presented at Cross Media Café: Uit het Lab. DIVE+ is result of a true inter-disciplinary collaboration between computer scientists, humanities scholars, cultural heritage professionals and interaction designers. In this project, we use the CrowdTruth methodology and framework in order to crowdsource events for the news broadcasts from The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (NISV) that are published under open licenses in the OpenImages platform.
As part of the digital humanities effort, DIVE+ is also integrated in the CLARIAH (Common Lab Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities) research infrastructure, next to other media studies research tools, that aims at supporting the media studies researchers and scholars by providing access to digital data and tools. In order to develop this project we work together with eScience Center, which is also funding the DIVE+ project.
