克服文化分析黑盒方法的局限性 --- 国际合作会议

2017年3月21日 - 23日 中国,广西,南宁,广西大学

会议简介

文化分析是一个正在兴起的跨学科领域。其目标是结合人文学科领域的专业知识和文化大数据驱动的密集计算来揭示文化领域的基本动力学。文化分析的内容既包括具体的人和事的分析,也包括整个人类文明变迁(进步、衰退和崩溃)的刻画。因此,文化分析是数字人文学科的拓展,又与计算社会科学交叠(但不等价)。作为一个新兴的学科,文化分析还没有形成对学科基本属性的形式描述(即还缺少文化分析的“微积分”,calculus of culture)。相反,它依赖基于机器学习的黑盒方法,因而不能发现文化动力学中的机制和原理。目前急需克服这个巨大瓶颈。

由丹麦政府资助,文化分析的三阶段国际网络研究小组(INP,international network program) 已经成立(点击查看),核心成员来自丹麦、荷兰、美国和中国。第一次会议讨论的内容包括(但不限于) :
(1)新闻和社交媒体深入的定量刻画(包括报纸上广告的影响力,政治冲突、国家关系)
(2)人的认知功能随时间变化的定量刻画
(3)经济系统复杂性的刻画
(4)小说情节发展的多尺度定量刻画
(5)绘画(包括佛教洞窟壁画)的分形分析
(6)人口追踪调查数据库及分析
(7)历史人物数据库分析
目的是找到一个和几个最能奠定文化分析微积分的基础的主题,形成一个以INP为基础的国际合作同盟,一起奠定文化分析微积分的基础。

第一次会议面向全球。这是一个纯学术的会议,不收注册费,但交通、食宿自理。欢迎各位同仁参加,有意向作报告者请尽快与我们联系(会议语言为英文)。
