Text is everywhere, and everything is text. More textual data than ever before are available to computational social scientists—be it in the form of digitized books, communication traces on social media platforms, or digital scientific articles. Researchers in academia and industry increasingly use text data to understand human behavior and to measure patterns in language. Techniques from natural language processing have created a fertile soil to perform these tasks and to make inferences based on text data on a large scale.
We were extremely lucky to kick off the first edition of the SAGE Ocean Speaker Series last week with a talk from tech attorney and social media law professor, Kimberly A. Houser.
We're excited to announce the launch of the SAGE Ocean Speaker Series!
We'll be hosting a series of free events throughout 2018 to explore the intersection of social science, big data and technology.
Our first event will take place next week in London, featuring tech attorney and social medial law professor, Kimberly A. Houser.
Kimberly will be talking about her research into the US tax authority’s use of big data, the resulting privacy issues and the potential violations of US federal law.
Call for Speakers!
If you're interested in speaking at one of our future events and engaging with the social science, publishing and tech communities in London, we'd love to hear from you.
