Topic :

Text Modeling with R and Python

Abstract :

The world communicates in text. Our work lives have us treading waist-deep in email, our hobbies often have blogs, our complaints go to Yelp, and even our personal lives are lived out via tweets, Facebook updates, and texts. There is a massive amount of information that can be heard from text — as long as you know how to listen. Learning from large amounts of text data is less a question of will and more a question of feasibility. How do you “read” the equivalent of thousands or even millions of novels in an afternoon?
