BIDS' Nick Adams is featured in this interview with Andrea Jones-Rooy in NYU's Data Science Demystifiedpodcast, in which they discuss Nick's TextThresher collaboration software, which uses text-classifying and analysis algorithms to identify important social and political concepts, including the relationship between police and protests.
Building on the success of its “Collections as Data” symposium last year, the Library of Congress National Digital Initiatives (NDI) again hosted a daylong symposium featuring a cadre of experts to explore the value of using digital collections and their impact on the public. The symposium featured case studies and impact stories about the application of digital methods in analyzing and sharing collections.
BIDS Fellow Nick Adams presented this talk at the Library of Congress National Digital Initiatives (NDI) on July 25, 2017.
In this talk at the Library of Congress' Collections as Data Symposium on July 25, 2017, BIDS' Nick Adams gave this talk about creating tutorials to teach archivists, librarians, and computational researchers how to make public digital archives accessible for computational text analysis techniques, allowing us to ask and answer more interesting and complex questions of those textual archives. This project also won a grant from the Social Science Research Council.
