Visit to Stanford

2016-02-18 09.56.25I had the pleasure to give a guest seminar on how we use Random Indexing at Gavagai to work with large amounts of text, at CERAS at Stanford University. The seminar was hosted by Love Björnsson who has very interesting data sets which we plan to work with to measure the level of authority and argumentation in topically coherent text.

I was glad to have both Pentti Kanerva who is the originator of Random Indexing, and Martin Kay who supervised my internship on text analysis and translation in 1991 in the seminar! Slides are here.
