A four-day institute at the University of Texas, Austin, with a follow-up workshop for humanities scholars, librarians, archivists, and advanced graduate students on the use of analytical tools to study digital audio collections of spoken word, such as oral histories, poetry, and Native American oral traditions.

We are applying for an Institutes for Advanced Technologies in the Digital Humanities grant from the NEH to support bringing together librarians and archivists, humanities scholars and students, and computer scientists and technologists invested in understanding and developing infrastructure for computational analysis on poetry, folklore, speeches, and storytelling sound files. The School of Information at the University of Texas at Austin and the Informatics Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign propose to host the High Performance Sound Technologies for Access and Scholarship (HiPSTAS) Institute to include meetings in May 2013 and in May 2014. In the interim year, scholars will work on scholarship in consultation with the HiPSTAS team. The second meeting is a symposium on the scholarship produced through the year as well as a meeting to propose recommendations for the development of tools for supporting advanced digital scholarly inquiry in spoken text sound.

The development of software that uses machine learning to help users automate descriptive metadata for spoken-word sound collections.

In order to increase the preservation of significant spoken word (such as poetry, storytelling, speeches, and oral histories) sound recordings, the UT Austin iSchool and the Illinois Informatics Institute (I3) are requesting two years of funding for HiPSTAS Research and Development with Repositories (HRDR) to develop software (ARLO) that uses machine learning and visualization to help users automate metadata description for undescribed sound collections. Products will include: (1) open source software (ARLO) that can be used with a variety of repositories; (2) a Drupal module for Mukurtu, an open source content management system designed for indigenous communities worldwide; (3) workshops and documentation for wider dissemination and training; and (4) a white paper detailing best practices in generating descriptive metadata for audio collections in the humanities.
