Upcoming Data Science Related Events

Friday, Feb. 24th 12pm - 1.30pm Debugging in R
360 Shields Library (DSI classroom)
We'll discuss strategies and tools for debugging R code, cover some examples and answer lots of questions. This will range from the basics to more advanced topics in debugging. And we'll have a general Q&A session also.
Friday, March 3rd 12pm - 1.30pm Natural Language Processing: Form and Meaning
360 Shields Library (DSI classroom)
This workshop will cover two NLP methods for assessing syntactic and semantic complexity and identifying key concepts represented in texts. Specific topics covered will include: hapax richness, author attribution, and Term Frequency-Inverse Document Frequency (TF-IDF) weighting. Participants must have some programming experience in R and familiarity with the Unix command line and Git. (Participation in the January 20th workshop on Slash and Burn Command Line and Git and the February 3rd workshop on Text Mining Fundamentals will prepare you well for this workshop.) Please come to the workshop with a working R development environment and Git already installed and operational on your system.
Friday, March 10th 12pm - 1.30pm Natural Language Processing: Text Classification
360 Shields Library (DSI classroom)
This hands-on workshop will cover the theory and practice of Topic Modeling as a method of untrained text classification. We will run a variety of models on the same corpus, identifying and discussing the function of model parameters and their effect on output. Validation practices will also be discussed. Participants should have moderate experience R and Git. Familiarity with the R “TM” package will be beneficial but is not required. (Participation in the previous four workshops in this series will prepare you well for this workshop.) Please come to the workshop with a working R development environment and Git already installed and operational on your system.
