A lecture and workshop with Mathieu Jacomy.

We are pleased to announce that the fourth and last publicETHOS of the semester will be with Mathieu Jacomy on the web crawler Hyphe.

Can we find our way in the web without Google?

The web is not structured as a library, but it is not chaos either. Thanks to graph theory we have a better understanding of the web as a network. Science Po médialab developed Hyphe, a web crawler leveraging this knowledge to help researchers build corpora.

Jacomy will present this tool with focus on two of its specificities: how the “prospect” interface helps the user to curate her/his corpus, and how the concept of “web entities” is used and implemented. The lecture will be followed by a practical workshop focusing on Hyphe usage: importing URLs, iterative extension and curation of the corpus, network exploration and data export.

You can read about Hyphe here.

Mathieu Jacomy is a Research Engineer at the  SciencesPo médialab in Paris, France. He is the developer of Hyphe and he also initiated the development and is still developing the network analysis software Gephi. Besides developing digital tools, he provides advice and support for scholars on digital methods.

Details: The event is free and open to everyone. Both the lecture and the workshop will be in english.
