Using the Distant Reader
Learn how to automatically "read" and "analyze" an arbitrarily large corpora of textual materials. The Distant Reader, a locally-written system, can accept as input large volumes of URLs or any number of files from your computer. It then creates a corpus from the input, converts it into plain text, does natural language processing against the plain text, and outputs sets of reports enabling you to use and understand the corpora to a greater degree. Useful to anybody across campus who needs to read large volumes of materials, this hands-on workshop will help you take control of your content.
There are no prerequisites, but participants will want to bring their own laptop to the session.
