Digital Humanities work intertwining computer science and humanities.
The term humanities defines the disciplines that focus on the arts, literature, music, dance, theater, architecture, philosophy, and other expressions of human culture.
So, digital humanities can be defined as new ways of working and studying that involve collaborative, trans-disciplinary, and computationally engagement.
This means bringing computer based tools and methods to the humanities, broadening the medium used for knowledge production and distribution.

Which are the advantaged of using Digital Humanities methods in your work/study environment?
You can digitize a physical work in a non damaging way, getting high resolution images, easier to be analyzed. Or, you may introduce statistical methods to your research, finding more quickly correlations and recurrent patterns. Some of the things that can be done through Digital Humanities are: digital archives, textual mining, analysis, and visualization. The tools can also be used in studying trends in cultural, social, linguistic change.
You could be able to understand bias in language, create better texts, improve your public documents, as well understanding the underlying messages in the text you get.

Digital Humanities are, as described a powerful tool to be used in common tasks, with the obvious critical and experience control by the users.
