Loretta Auvil attends Chicago Colloquium on Digital Humanities and Computer Science 2011 which occurred Nov. 20-21, 2011. With many of the collaborators from the SEASR Services project, a set of demonstrations were prepared as part of the Software Demonstration program. Our work with Matt Jockers from Stanford prompted the Topic Modeling demonstration. Our work with Ted Underwood on the Google Ngrams data and correlation analysis prompted the development of the web application, “Correlation Analysis and Ngram Viewer“. A paper describing the demonstration, “SEASR Analytics” is available here.

Ted Underwood, one of our collaborators on the SEASR Services project, also attended and presented,
“Combining topic-modeling and time-series approaches to reveal trends in 18th- and 19th-century discourse.” This paper is also available here.
