Machine Learning Techniques for Social Science Texts & Datasets

Dates:
  • Fri 26 May 2017 09.00 - 17.00
  • Sat 27 May 2017 10.00 - 12.00
  Add to Calendar 2017-05-26 9:00 2017-05-27 12:00 Europe/Paris Machine Learning Techniques for Social Science Texts & Datasets

The workshop focuses on the application of supervised and unsupervised machine learning techniques to political texts and dataset. The goal of the workshop is to enable participants to apply machine learning to data collections of their own interest (e.g. parliamentary speeches,newspaper data or party manifestoes) and discuss the challenges they face while doing so. The focus of the workshop is practical, thus, more time is devoted to application than a generalintroduction. Furthermore, the discussion of students’ research designs and first results is an important part of the workshop and participants
are strongly encouraged to bring their own designs and data. The workshop discusses both unsupervised and supervised methods ofmachine learning, e.g. text scaling, topic models, and word embeddings.
