THIS EVENT TAKES PLACE ON ZOOM. Please contact Pascal Belouin for details.
Charles will present the journal article analysis system that he and his group have been developing over the last few years: evoText. evoText is a platform designed for user-friendly textual analysis of journal articles in the "evolutionary sciences”. Charles will discuss evoText's current software infrastructure as well as the corpus (around 1.6M articles) currently available on the platform, provide some small examples of the kind of things it can do, and then talk about the troubles and bugs he and his team faced. He will then talk about their future plans as well as the potential payoffs of their work. Finally, depending on the generosity of the live-demo-gods, Charles hopes to conclude his presentation with a live demo. You can find more information about Charles’s Digital Humanities work on his research group’s website at https://pencelab.be/.

About This Series
Brown Bag Lunch is a bi-weekly meeting of researchers at the MPIWG who use or want to learn more about digital research methods, broadly encompassed by the term Digital Humanities. In the Brown Bag Lunch meetings, researchers can discuss tools, share ideas and experiences (good and bad), and learn from each other. Each session explores a new topic; workshops are usually interactive, and we often invite external speakers. Please feel free to bring your lunch, and a laptop or notebook in order to participate!
