Webinar - BitCurator NLP Project

Date: April 20, 2018 at 12pm ET

The BitCurator NLP project has been developing software for collecting institutions to extract, analyze, and produce reports on features of interest in text extracted from born-digital materials. The project is adapting existing natural language processing (NLP) software to identify and report on items likely to be relevant to ongoing preservation, information organization, and access, including entities (e.g. persons, places, and organizations), potential relationships among entities, and topic models to provide insight into how concepts are naturally clustered within the documents. In this webinar current versions of BCA Webtools and the BitCurator NLP tools will be demonstrated. The webinar will conclude with a discussion of future directions.

The webinar will be led by Cal Lee and Kam Woods from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Information and Library Science.

There are no prerequisites for this webinar. However, it is designed for users already familiar with the basic operations of the BitCurator environment. The webinar will be roughly one hour, including at least 10 minutes for Q&A at the end. The webinar will be recorded and made available publicly on the BitCurator Consortium website.
