NewsCamp::From words to data and back

Jam Sessions: Programming skills are required for this more loosely organized track. We'll begin by tackling python-based Natural Language Toolkit (NLTK) and explaining what it can do. Attendees will work together on ways to apply more sophisticated text analysis using NLTK to their reporting.

If you will be attending NewsCamp and the CAR conference, there is no extra charge for Newscamp but you must register for the hands-on portion. Space is very limited so please only sign-up if you plan on attending.If you plan on attending only NewsCamp, please contact Amy Johnston to register: amy@ire.org or 573-884-1444.

NOTE: Registration is required for this session.
