From text analytics to predictive analytics enhanced by language sciences – RSVP here
May 21st, 2pm to 4pm
ORCH 3074, 6363 Agronomy Rd, Vancouver
Data Science Institute Director and UBC Computer Science Professor Raymond Ng will give a short overview of some of his research, analyzing various types of text data, includingsentiment analysis and abstractive summarization. Then, he will discuss how to build predictive models based on text and data of various kinds and use examples involving identifyingpatients with emotional needs, and stratifying children with potentially high risk for suicide. Finally, Dr. Ng will speculate as to how language sciences can enhance predictive models that are purely data-driven. More information is available here and you can RSVP here.
