Data Science Research Center Seminar | Let’s Reveal the Beautiful Interface of Humanities and Data Science | A talk Marc Yu Jia and Jenni Hanhan Zhang

Abstract

How can students and professors of humanities and data science learn from each other’s unique perspectives in a simple fun way? Can those seemingly unrelated geniuses work together and discover their mysteriously yet shared unknowns? Yes, we have gained insights from our innovative initiative: Dialogue Learning, a whole new AIpowered EdTech media. Want to discover the invisible pattern behind Ernest Hemingway’s writings? Or hope to fall in love with natural-language processing from a case that will blow your mind? Come and join us. Yes, it will be fun!
