DiscoverText collects and cleans up messy Twitter and other text data streams. The workshop covers how to reach and substantiate inferences using a theoretical and applied model informed by a decade of interdisciplinary, NSF-funded research into the text classification problem. Participants will learn how to apply “CoderRank” in machine learning.  The major idea of the workshop is that when training machines for text analysis, researchers should rely on the input of those humans most likely to create a valid observation.)
Three repeating sessions:

  • 10-11:30 A; 1:30-2:50 PM & 3:15-4:45 PM at Green Library Bing Wing 121A
