Introduction to Text & Data Mining

Open to:
-Faculty -Graduate Students -Postdocs -Staff -Undergraduate Students

This hands-on session affords participants to learn the benefits of using computers to analyze textual corpora such as a collection of books or journal articles. Sometimes called "distant" or "scalable" reading, text mining — a form of digital humanities research — is a way to literally count and tabulate the frequency of words (or phrases) in a text in order to find patterns and anomalies within it. Based on the resulting analysis, it is possible to more quickly learn what a corpus is about when compared to reading the corpus without the use of a computer.

There are no prerequisites, but participants may want to bring their own laptop to the session.
