Marieke van Erp is a Language Technology and Semantic Web expert with a penchant for interdisciplinary research. She leads the Digital Humanities Lab at KNAW Humanities Cluster (Amsterdam) and is a co-founder and scientific director of the Cultural AI Lab, a collaboration between various heritage and research institutes in the Netherlands. The Lab is aimed at developing socio-technological AI systems that are implicitly or explicitly aware of the subtle and subjective complexity of human culture. Dr. Van Erp’s work spans many different domains, from olfactory, socio-economic, and maritime history to data journalism and cultural heritage but is always driven by language understanding and knowledge representation.
