Workshop: Text Mining Fundamentals

February 3, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Instructor: Carl Stahmer

Date: February 3, 2017

Time: 12 – 1:30pm


This workshop will introduce basic concepts in text mining and Natural Language processing through
discussion and hands-on coding of text processing functions that lay the groundwork for nearly all
text mining processes. No prior programming experience is necessary to take the workshop; however,
familiarity with the command line and Git is a prerequisite. (Participation in the February 3rd
workshop on command line and Git will prepare you well for this workshop.) We’ll code together as a
group, leaving no text-miner behind. Topics covered will include: Word frequency analysis, basic
chunking/tokenization, token distribution, and keyword in context (KWIC) analysis. Please come to
the workshop with a working R development environment and Git already installed and operational on
your system.
