    Under the umbrella of the D-WISE project, manual and digital approaches to discourse analysis are combined to develop a prototypical working environment for digital qualitative discourse analysis. This new qualitative data analysis tool, called D-WISE Tool Suite, is built up in a process of close exchange by the two teams from humanities and informatics and focuses on developing central innovations regarding the availability of relevant Digital Humanities (DH) applications. Bridging the gap between structural patterns detected with digital methods and interpretative processes of human meaning making is at the core of the collaborative approach of anthropological studies and computer linguistics in the D-WISE project, which innovates both informatics technology of contextoriented embedding representations and hermeneutic methodologies for discourse analysis in the Sociology of Knowledge Approach to Discourse (SKAD). In this paper, the intertwining of the two paradigms Human-in-the-loop and AI-in-theloop will be presented by outlining the concept of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) in the D-WISE Tool Suite with its AI-empowered features and established modes of feedback-loops and the supported functions for facilitating SKAD.
