Forrest Crawford: Link-tracing studies of hidden networks

November 7 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
11th Floor, 177 Huntington Avenue
Boston, MA 02115 United States

Respondent-driven sampling (RDS) is a link-tracing survey method for sampling members of a hidden or hard-to-reach population such as drug users, sex workers, or homeless people via their social network.  Starting with a set of “seed” subjects, participants use a small number of coupons tagged with a unique code to recruit their social contacts by giving them a coupon.  Subjects report their network degree, but not the identities of their contacts.  RDS is controversial and researchers disagree about whether it…

Ben Schmidt: Using word2vec and other vector space models to explore relationships in language

November 9 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Digital Scholarship Commons, 215 Snell Library
Boston , MA 02115 United States
+ Google Map

In recent years, Google's word2vec and other vector space models of language have emerged as simultaneously useful and intriguing ways to computationally describe human language as a set of relationships among words. They have proven considerably better than previous methods at tasks like describing language analogically. (In the canonical example, for instance, word2vec can accurately describe that a queen is the female equivalent of a king.) In this workshop, we'll learn to interpret and create word2vec models using R. We'll…
