Allen Romano is a technologist, humanist, and former professor. He is currently the co-founder and CPO at Logoi Learning Systems
, an educational technologies start-up. As a professor, he founded and ran the Humanities MA program at Florida State University and before that held posts in Classics at FSU and the University of Chicago. He regularly taught a wide range of undergraduate and graduate courses, ranging from graduate classes in R, Python, digital pedagogy, Greek language, literature, and culture, to undergraduate classes at all levels of Greek and Latin language, and from the paleolithic through the middle ages and modernity. Trained as a classicist and specializing in Ancient Greek literature, Dr. Romano’s research work focused especially on Greek poetry and drama and, digitally, on text-mining and, more recently, deep learning with ancient literature. With Tarez Graban, Sarah Stanley, and Judith Pascoe, he has helped launch and run the Demos Project
for Data Humanities at FSU.
