OCLC Symposium on Culturomics

View the presentation by Jean-Baptiste Michel and Erez Lieberman Aiden on

Together, Jean-Baptiste Michel and Erez Lieberman Aiden develop quantitative approaches to the study of history and culture that rely on computational analysis of a significant fraction of the historical record, an approach they call ‘Culturomics.’ Their work led to the creation of the Google Ngram Viewer, a website for browsing cultural trends that was visited more than 3 million times in the 24 hours after its launch. Their research has been featured on the covers of Nature and Science and on the front page of the New York Times, the Boston Globe and the Wall Street Journal. Their talk describing this work, at, has been viewed more than a million times. They are the authors of the forthcoming book, Uncharted: Big Data and an Emerging Science of Human History (Riverhead Books).
