  1. 1. co-funded by the European Union Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Tobias Blanke, Sally Chambers, Alastair Dunning, Stefan Gradmann, Jonathan Gray, Steffen Hennicke, Gerhard Lauer, Christian Morbidoni, Alois Pichler, Jürgen Renn, Laurent Romary, Felix Sasaki, Susan Schreibman, Claire Warwick DH 2013, Lincoln, Nebraska
  2. 2. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 2 On the Menu • Infrastructure … • … and why “beyond” • Work we’ve been building on • The DM2E Scholarly Domain Model • The Wittgenstein Incubator • What can you do with all this? • Limitations!
  3. 3. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 3 Infrastructure … … and Why Going Beyond??
  4. 4. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 44 Cyberinfrastructure: Atkins Report (2003) • “Mother of all infrastructure layer cakes” impacted – “Our Cultural Commonwealth”, e-Science (UK), TextGrid, DARIAH – With Isidore, Europeana and others being more content oriented and LoD based
  5. 5. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 5 Why Beyond Infrastructure? • We want to move beyond emulation mode … • … beyond 'pages' and 'links' • “Research infrastructure is not research just as roads are not economic activity. We tend to forget when confronted by large infrastructure projects that they are not an end in themselves. [...] Infrastructure projects can become ends in themselves by developing into an industry that promotes continued investment. To sustain infrastructure there develops a class of people whose jobs are tied to infrastructure investment.” Rockwell (2010) • → how can we better understand and model primary research activities in order to re-implement them more thoroughly?
  6. 6. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 6 Scholarly Primitives and Dynamics • Unsworth (2000) – discovering, annotating, comparing, referring, sampling, illustrating, representing – as the basis for tool-building enterprises for the Digital Humanities • Palmer et al. (2009)(“scholarly information activities”) – searching, collecting, reading, writing, collaborating • … Blanke & Hedges (2011), Bamboo (2010), McCarty et. al. (2002) Anderson et al. (2010) ... • Bernardou et al. (2010) – CRM activity and event based process model connecting research activities with information objects and propositions, i.e. including argumentation structures
  7. 7. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 7 The DM2E Scholarly Domain Model
  8. 8. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 8 The Glue: RDF / RDFS • Typed statements on web resources (triples) and how they relate to each other, e. g. • + RDF Schema (RDFS) language with constructors for sub- and superclasses and -properties including the concept of inheritance • → simple, deterministic logical operations on triple aggregations (“reasoning”)
  9. 9. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 9 The Scholarly Domain ... … from 10.000 feet above

  14. 14. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 14 Zoom on Research
  15. 15. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 15 The Wittenstein Incubator
  16. 16. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 16 Roadmap a) Identify the intended functional extension of the 1st Pundit & Korbo versions (→ visualisation!) b) Stabilise scholarly domain model c) Identify additional specialisations of primitives d) Formalise, ontologically model such specialisations e) Populate the DM2E platform with Wittgenstein's Brown Book and related material f) Have ~10 scholars work in that environment g) Analyse and model the resulting scholarly semantic graph h) Iterate at least once from d) (or even c)!) i) Report at DH 2013
  17. 17. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 17 Wittgenstein Source 16.04.2013

  19. 19. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 19 Contextualising Wittgenstein
  20. 20. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 20 What Can We Use This For … And Which are the Limitations?
  21. 21. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 21 Create and Visualise Graph Models Graph of Thinkers (is this one really useful?) Graph of Thinkers II Philosophers Edgemap Relfinder Textexture (nonlinear reding version of this paper)
  22. 22. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 22 Expected Results and Limitations • A Social Semantic Scholarly Graph – Enabling interaction (via Pundit and Edgemaps/LODLive) – Enabling heuristic operations (building on RDFS inference) – As an object of scholarly study (graph evolution modeling requires named graph based extensions for versioning, provenance, authorisation et.) • Ontology components for modeling scholarly discourse and interaction – Beware: “The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.” Tractatus, 5.6 • And, most importantly, Tractatus, 7: “Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.”
  23. 23. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 23 Parties Involved
  24. 24. Beyond Infrastructure: Further Modeling the Scholarly Domain Digital Humanities 2013, Lincoln/Nebraska, 19/07/2013 24 Questions? (Everything but “What is Modeling?”)
