In the recent years, with the pervasiveness of computers and a great variety of electronic
devices connected to the Internet, Digital Humanities as a research field has
experienced a great transformation that has permitted the completion of very ambitious
projects with large impact in the society beyond the academia. This has resulted in a major
economic impact in the cultural and creative industry. A number of new and powerful ICT
have made possible the exploitation of a wealth of data (either digitized or digitally born) that
have, on the other hand, changed enormously the practice in Digital Humanities, and exposed novel
challenges that must be faced in order to complete any of the said projects. From the
creation to the consumption of digital resources, there are new stakeholders, contexts and
tasks to consider. The amount of digital resources produced (or digitized), stored, explored,
and analysed in any Digital Humanities project is immensely vast (specially if we take into account the
introduction of linked-data), so the traditional humanities tools have to be either substituted or
aided with ancillary tools in the form of interactive visualisations or novel user interfaces.
Furthermore, during the whole lifecycle of any Digital Humanities project –from the data preparation to the
actual analysis or exploration phase–, many decisions have to be made in order to yield the
desired results that depend on the uncertainty pertaining to both the datasets and the models
behind them.


  • Understanding all the sources of uncertainty that can affect the DH practice
  • Assessing the degree of uncertainty of data sources
  • Communication of uncertainty to the user/researcher
