|metadata.ubs.konferenzname:||EADH: Data in Digital Humanities (2018, Galway)|
|Abstract:||In this paper, we aim at identifying protagonists in plays automatically. To this end, we train a classifier using various features and investigate the importance of each feature. A challenging aspect here is that the number of spoken words for a character is a very strong baseline. We can show, however, that a) the stage presence of characters and b) topics used in their speech can help to detect protagonists even above the baseline.|
