Fragments from a digital philologist.
Welcome to Daniele Fusi's website. Here you can find miscellaneous material about digital humanities, free software downloads, interactive web applications, scientific publications, students information related to my University courses, and more.
The Chiron Project
Chiron is an expert system for the prosodical, syntactical and metrical analysis of poetry (or even prose) texts, whatever their language and poetic tradition, modular and extensible. A new (3rd) generation of this tool is under completion. Meantime, you can read about it in my papers: you can find some of them here, even if the most up to date one (for Langages) is still under print.
The Cadmus Project
Cadmus is a new implementation of a generic, modular and extensible corpora editing tool I created for an epigraphical project some years ago. This new tool is web-based, technology-agnostic and built from the ground up to promote extension and reuse. You can find more about its first generation in the 2nd volume of my book.
Free downloadable software:
- UniSpy: explore the Unicode standard, quickly find the desired characters, and much more.
- Theuth: MS Word addin for converting and typing Greek text.
- Khronos: a tiny utility for keeping an eye on time during a presentation.
- XPathQuery: a small demo application for playing with XML and XPath.
Some ludolinguistic apps of mine.
Some toys for Classical antiquities: eras converters, measurements converters, epigraphical abbreviations, Roman imperial titles, etc. These resources were originally created as editing aids for Cadmus.
In the section below my students can find information about courses, books and exams. This practical information is available in Italian for them. In the workshop section you can find some interactive examples of students works.
