CSDE Computational Demography Working Group: “Scaling Qualitative Analysis of Twitter Data via RShiny”

Posted: 2/6/2018 (Local Events)

This is a reminder that this Thursday, February 8th, CSDE’s computational demography group will have its second meeting of the quarter.

Ian Kennedy, a doctoral student in Sociology, will lead the session on leveraging RShiny to improve sentiment analysis of Twitter tweets with qualitative approaches.

Ian will offer an introduction to his broad project and goals. Beyond a discussion of big ideas, Ian will give a demo based on some code that he wrote (e.g., https://github.com/ikennedy240/TweetRater). Ian is looking forward to sharing what he has learned along the way and to receiving feedback on his project as he moves forward with his research.

The meeting will be held in Raitt Hall 114, from 12:00-1:20 PM.

Light refreshments will be served. Everyone is welcome!
