We catch up with Ken Benoit, who developed Quanteda, a large R package originally designed for the quantitative analysis of textual data, from which the name is derived. In 2018, Quanteda received $35,000 of seed funding as inaugural winners of the SAGE Concept Grants program. We find out what challenges Ken faced and how the funding helped in the development of the package.
We are delighted to announce the first three winners of our Concept Grants program.
Each has been awarded $35k to develop their ideas and help more social scientists to work with big data.
