CREATE is short for Creative Amsterdam: An E-Humanities Perspective, based at the department of Media Studies. This project integrates and supports research on urban and cultural history conducted with digital resources and methods.

Researchers, technicians and data scientists of CREATE investigate how cultural industries have shaped Amsterdam’s unique position in a European and global context, from the seventeenth century until the present day. In doing so, they collect data on the various cultural sectors of Amsterdam, link and enrich datasets, and develop novel search and analysis tools. They explore the possibilities and limitations of various computational techniques and methods, such as text mining, network analysis, image recognition, 3D visualisations and GIS mapping. The development of different cultural and creative industries is examined in projects that are organized in different program lines: Amsterdam Time Machine, Performing Arts, Artificial Intelligence and Impact of the Humanities.
