Call for Presentations:


“What’s on your mind?” This is the question to which every Facebook status update now responds. Millions of users sharing their thoughts in one giant performance of what Clay Shirky once called “cognitive surplus”. Contemporary media platforms aren’t simply a stage for this cognitive performance. They are more like directors, staging scenes, tweaking scripts, working to get the best or fully “optimized” performance. As Katherine Hayles has pointed out, media theory has long taken for granted that we think “through, with and alongside media”. Pen and paper, the abacus, and modern calculators are obvious cases in point, but the list quickly expands and with it longstanding conceptions of the Cartesian mind dissolve away. Within the cognitive sciences, cognition is now routinely described as embodied, extended, and distributed. They too recognize that cognition takes place beyond the brain, in between people, between people and things, and combinations thereof. The varieties of specifically human thought, from decision-making to reasoning and interpretation, are now considered one part of a broader cognitive spectrum shared with other animals, systems, and intelligent devices.

Today, the technology we mostly think through, with and alongside are computers. We routinely rely on intelligent devices for any number of operations, but this is no straightforward “augmentation”. Our cognitive capacities are equally instrumentalized, plugged into larger cognitive operations from which we have little autonomy. Our cognitive weaknesses are exploited and manipulated by techniques drawn from behavioural economics and psychology. If Vannevar Bush once pondered how we would think in the future, he received a partial response in Steve Krug’s best selling book on web usability: Don’t Make Me Think! Streams of Consciousness aims to explore cognition, broadly conceived, in an age of intelligent devices. We aim to critically interrogate our contemporary infatuation with specific cognitive qualities – such as “smartness” and “intelligence” – while seeking to genuinely understand the specific forms of cognition that are privileged in our current technological milieu. We are especially interested in devices that mediate access to otherwise imperceptible forms of data (too big, too fast), so it can be acted upon in routine or novel ways.

Topics of the conference include but are not limited to:

- data and cognition

- decision-making technologies

- algorithms, AI and machine learning

- visualization, perception

- sense and sensation

- business intelligence and data exploration

- signal intelligence and drones

- smart and dumb things

- choice and decision architecture

- behavioural economics and design

- technologies of nudging

- interfaces

- bodies, data, and (wearable) devices

- optimization

- web and data analytics (including A/B and multivariate testing)

Please submit individual abstracts of no longer than 300 words. Panel proposals are also welcome and should also be 300 words. Panel proposals should also include indvidual abstracts. The deadline for submissions is Friday the 18th of December and submissions should be made tocimconf at warwick.ac.uk<mailto:tocimconf at warwick.ac.uk>.

WORKSHOP AUTOMATED HANDWRITTEN TEXT RECOGNITION TRANSKRIBUS AND THE
‘RESOLUTIONS OF THE DUTCH STATES-GENERAL’ (Den Haag, Netherlands, 25
November 2015)

The workshop introduces Transkribus and is organized by Huygens ING, INL
and the tranScriptorium project. Transkribus is developed in the EU funded
project tranScriptorium, a research infrastructure for transcribing and
automated text recognition of historical documents.

Automated recognition of handwritten documents (HTR) is no longer wishful
thinking but a real option. Whether it concerns medieval codices or modern
archival documents, HTR is not only able to create an automated
transcription, it also offers significantly improved search capabilities
through new search methods (“keyword spotting”).

Until recently, intensive efforts by specialized researchers have been the
only way to make the content of the resolutions accessible. In the new
project, alternative ways to make the content of the resolutions accessible
for researchers and other users are explored. Huygens-ING carries out a
number of pilot projects to clarify to which extent advanced ICT techniques
and tools can reduce the dependency on manual labor. Working with HTR is
one of these pilots.

The workshop  shows preliminary results of a training set of the 17th
century resolutions of the Dutch Staten-Generaal (Estates General), of
automated structuring of printed 18th century resolutions. Moreover, it
also offers a hands-on Transkribus session for the participants.

The transcripts of the *Resolutions of the States-General *consist of
200.000 pages of handwritten text that not only reflect the invention and
early development of the new Dutch State, but also are a witness of the
daily political activities of the “Hoogmogende Heren”.

*Programme*

During the second part the participants get the opportunity to try out
Transkribus on their own laptops to get a sense of the stage the technology
is in and what it can mean for their own work.

For this goal we ask participants to install Transkribus beforehand.
Instructions for this will be send to you prior to the meeting.

are evenly spread among the three days of the conference: our keynote 
speaker will be Franco Niccolucci, Scientific Director of VAST-LAB 
(PIN-Università di Firenze), coordinator of several European research 
projects in the Digital Cultural Heritage area; we will also have as 
invited speakers Leif Isaksen, Senior Lecturer in History (Digital 
Humanities) at Lancaster University, Caterina Bon, Direttore Generale 
della Direzione Generale “Educazione e Ricerca” of MiBACT, and Davide 
Porporato, researcher in Antropologia at Università degli Studi del
