About the Event

We are in an era of data abundance and machine-learning tools are increasingly used to extract meaning from all types of datasets.

In this quick demo, the speakers will briefly showcase how social scientists can take advantage of Machine Learning tools in classification tasks that highlight the current data availability.

The speakers will provide a step-by-step tutorial on how to take advantage of the computation resources available at the HPE Data Science Institute using RoBERTa infrastructure in a text classification task. They will also provide examples of other Natural Language Processing tasks useful to social scientists.
