Talk title: ‘A Text-Mining Approach of Authorship Attribution through DocuSky Corpus Grams Tool’

Speaker: Dr Chijui Hu 胡其瑞, National Changhua University of Education in Taiwan

For the second instalment of the Digital Tools for Sinology and Beyond talk series, the TEXTCOURT project is pleased to have Dr Chijui Hu share with us the application of the Corpus Grams Tool developed by DocuSky. In this talk, Dr Hu will introduce how humanities researchers use the Corpus Grams Tool to analyse and mine the texts. Using the N-Gram function in the DocuSky Collaboration Platform developed by the Research Center for Digital Humanities of National Taiwan University, one can determine the author (authorship attribution) and identify the crucial concepts of a given text. Through the demo of the Corpus Grams Tool developed by Dr Hsiehchang Tu, this talk will demonstrate how one can easily apply digital tools in their research without any prior knowledge of information science.

Dr Chijui Hu 胡其瑞 is Assistant Professor at the Graduate Institute of History, the National Changhua University of Education in Taiwan. He is also Adjunct Research Fellow at the Research Center for Digital Humanities, the National Taiwan University. In the last few years, Dr Hu has been the PM of DocuSky Collaboration Platform. He has participated in numerous workshops in multiple universities overseas promoting the application of DocuSky.
