Recap: talks and workshop “how to do research on algorithms when you’re not a programmer” (12.11.2019)
Last week, we ended our semester with a full-day event on approaches to research algorithms without going into the code. Experts Ysabel Gerrard and Taina Bucher each gave a lecture and, in the workshop afterwards, participants discussed their ideas and obstacles on the ways in which they research algorithms.
Last week, special guest Lars Johnsen gave a workshop for the DHNetwork on how to use data the National Library of Norway as a source for computational analysis. The varied groups of participants from the humanities, social sciences and university library learned to use different tools to analyze textual data in Jupyter Notebooks.
In a well-attended afternoon, Charles Ess and Eva Payne gave talks about the state of the art of research ethics followed by a closed workshop session for students and researchers using social media data in their projects.
