Big Data Sets and the Cloud Computing Technology for Digital Humanities


The main aim of the paper is to draw a concept of sets of Big Data which occur in the sphere of digital humanities, to describe new IT tools applied for its analysis and the conditions of its usage in the environment of the cloud computing technology. The technological development, which took place in the recent years in the field of information and communications technologies (ICT), especially the change in the way of governing of data in relation to the development of the cloud computing technology enables nowadays gathering unimaginable amount of data (Big Data sets) being created in various spheres of human and machine world. The defi nition and the origin of development of such sets of data are presented in the paper as well as the construction of the ecosystem of the cloud computing technology in which Big Data sets are gathered and processed is described. Big data sets are reach sources of new information. Advanced IT analytical tools are applied to investigate its content in order to obtain a new knowledge. In the paper the emphasize is on sets of Big Data gathered within the digital humanities area and chosen examples of IT analytical tools currently applied for these purposes are described. Also, the conditions related to the usage of such new information infrastructure in relation to digital humanities are highlited.
