Event Details

A two-day workshop that brings together leading researchers from the US and Denmark in an event that explores Social Media, Big Data and Language Technology. The explosion of unstructured text on the web presents new challenges and opportunities for business and researchers.

This workshop brings together leading language technology researchers from the US and Denmark, and seeks to explore some of the challenges and opportunities presented by Big Data -- the massive amount of unstructured, user-generated data on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. We wish to build bridges between language technology researchers and potential users of language technology in business, government and other organizations. The workshop is jointly organized by the Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering, the Department of Computer Science, and the Center for Computational Learning Systems at Columbia University in New York as well as the Department of IT Management at Copenhagen Business School, and funded in part by the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation. It will consist of presentations of the latest results from research labs in language technologies such as sentiment analysis, topic tracking, summarization, and automatic translation. In addition, business leaders will present their perspective on current and potential uses of these technologies.

All are welcome to participate with our two-day conference. Please specify which day or days you plan to attend. Any questions about the event, please email Lauren Mazurowski, lm2963@columbia.edu.

Free conference will include light refreshments both days, and a reception following the last presentation on Monday evening. An optional non-refundable pre-paid networking lunch is available both days with limited availability to first-come first serve.
