A session at CAR 2012

Thursday 23rd February, 2012

9:00am to 9:50am (CST)

A computational linguist describes key ideas in thinking about text as data that, through statistics, can help us understand the behavior of people and society. We'll show a range of examples that illustrate tradeoffs in statistical and computational complexity, linguistic sophistication, and weak vs. strong domain assumptions.
