The Splash Brothers, Steph Curry, and Klay Thompson, are great shooters but they are not streak shooters. Only rarely do they show signs of a hot hand. This counter-intuitive result is based on an empirical analysis of field goal and free throw data from the 82 regular season games and 17 post season games played by the Golden State Warriors in 2016–2017.
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.
