New Directions in Text Analysis
Friday, May 21, 2010 - Saturday, May 22, 2010
As last year, the purpose of the conference will be to "a) provide substantive researchers with a better idea of cutting edge methods for natural language processing, b) provide technical researchers a better sense of the fundamental questions that drive much empirical work in the humanities, social sciences, law, and biomedical sciences and c) identify points of intersection between important substantive problems and open methodological problems."
We have over a dozen presenters already confirmed, from all over Harvard, including FAS, the Medical school, the Law school and Business School. We will also see talks from colleagues in text analysis at Carnegie-Mellon, Cornell and UMass Amherst.
Finally, we welcome several speakers from "industry" this year, with representatives from both the intelligence community and Reuters, engaged in pioneering text research efforts in their fields.
