The aim of the course is to introduce participants to quantitative analysis of textual data. We will start with an overview of key concepts and the basic workflow; then we discuss how textual data can be analyzed using computational tools and what kind of techniques should be applied to discover interesting patters in large data. The techniques we cover include supervised, unsupervised and semi-supervised machine learning algorithms for document classification and scaling.

Hardware and Software Requirements: Please bring your own laptop with R and RStudio ready-to-use. Basic knowledge of R is required
