Grant application

The Visual Navigator through Knowledge Spaces – visually searching the Wikipedia

What new tools are needed to understand contemporary knowledge structures? How can high level patterns in knowledge and information spaces be detected and mapped? Can we develop a generic tool for visual navigation in large databases with variable choice of dimensions and attributes to render high level patterns? This project addresses these questions by taking the case of the Wikipedia as an example of a contemporary knowledge structure which is particularly relevant to the humanities.

This grant application has been submitted to the "Computational Humanities Programme" of the KNAW.
