The Center for Computation and Visualization (CCV) is offering an introductory workshop on the Python programming language and natural language processing, targeted toward graduate students and postdocs in the humanities and social sciences. Python is a versatile computer programming language, useful in many contexts including analyzing large bodies of text. No experience with coding is required. Faculty and staff members can register if space is available. In the first week of the workshop, we will learn how to manipulate and plot data, and modify text. In the second week, we will use natural language processing to analyze large sets of text data. NLP allows us to extract topics, analyze sentiment or summarize text that would take too long for humans to read. The workshop runs July 1-12. Each day will consist of a morning lecture (9am-noon), lunch, and hands-on exercises (1pm-4pm). Participants will have the opportunity to work on their own data-intensive projects with help from CCV data scientists during the second week. Lunch and coffee/tea are provided. The workshop is supported by the Data Science Initiative’s NSF-TRIPODS grant.
