The Transparency Series – Natural Language Processing

October 26 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Presenter
Allison Parrish, NYU

Workshop Description
Much like other forms of data, documents and text provide enormous potential as a form of data to be analyzed and visualized. This workshop will introduce and discuss the ways in which textual materials (news articles, government records, social media, and other primary sources) can be worked with as data in creative and insightful ways. Participants in this workshop will be exposed to some common techniques for textual analysis and representation of documents common in contemporary practice. Participants will be led through creative exercises around the intersection of computation and language as a way to gain familiarity and comfort with this medium. The workshop will involve a bit of programming in Python to allow participants to work with, visualize, and generate text in interesting ways.
