Data Science for the Humanities and Social Sciences

Social Hour

Dec 05 4:30 – 5:30 pm
Center for Digital Humanities
Firestone Library, Floor B


Are you curious about how machine learning can be used to study fragments of medieval Egyptian letters? Or how quantitative methods can help trace the monetization of misinformation on the web? Intrigued by AI but don’t know what it is? Not sure how to work with your complex collection of texts, images, and other media? Want to learn coding but don’t know where to start?

Join us for a casual social hour (food/wine/beer) to learn about new training opportunities for students and researchers in the humanities and social sciences. During Wintersession 2023, this new set of workshops and classes, which are specifically tailored for these two communities, will cover the following:

  • Data literacy
  • Python and R at the beginner and intermediate levels
  • Natural language processing
  • Machine learning
  • High-performance computing

The event will include brief presentations about the new trainings as well as a showcase of the most exciting computational work done in the humanities and social sciences.
