This seminar will feature brief talks by 3 researchers about some of their current work at the intersection of NLP and computational social science:
Qinlan Shen, Research Scientist at Oracle Labs and LTI-PhD graduate
Julia Mendelhson, PhD student at the University of Michigan
Ashiqur KhudaBukhsh, Project Scientist at CMU and LTI-PhD graduate
We will also provide a brief introduction to the field of computational social science, and all presenters will participate in an open discussion and Q&A session. We're aiming for attendees to learn about what NLP technologies are currently used in social oriented tasks, including where they excel and where they are deficient, as well as open challenges and research opportunities in the field.
