NLP+CSS 201: Beyond the basics

  • This website hosts the upcoming tutorial series for advanced NLP methods, for computational social science scholars.
  • Every few weeks, we will host some experts in the field of computational social science to present a new method in NLP, and to lead participants in an interactive exploration of the method with code and sample text data. If you are a graduate student or researcher who has some introductory knowledge of NLP (e.g. has learned text analysis from SICSS) and wants to “level up”, come join us!

I’ll need to add a count value to table_topic. It can have a default of 1
