Text As Data, New 2 day seminar Taught by Dr. Christopher Bail from May 31 – June 1 will provide participants with an overview of popular techniques for collecting and analyzing text-based data—including screen-scraping, application programming interfaces or APIs, topic modeling, and network-based text classifiers. Though the class will review basic programming techniques such as loops and functions, students with no familiarity with these techniques may wish to review them in advance. The majority of our time will be spent mastering the following R packages: rvest, twitterR, RFacebook, lda, stm, ldaviz, and textnets, as well as a variety of functions in base R.

This seminar hosted by Statistical Horizons is designed for researchers or practitioners who have no prior experience collecting or analyzing text data using automated methods but have basic familiarity with R, basic data processing skills and beginner level programming knowledge.

A fee of $995 includes all course materials. The early registration fee of $895 is available until April 30. Click HERE to register and learn more about the seminar.
