A tutorial at the ML Bootcamp

August 17, 2015

The ML Bootcamp is a joint University of Warwick and Monash University programme organised by PhD students.  Really great programme with all sorts of cool stuff in data science.  My tutorial is Introducing Document Analysis (pdf slides).  This is a “grand tour” tutorial, giving lots of examples rather then properly covering any particular theories or algorithms.

An earlier talk I gave, on a related topic, is Introduction to Text Mining (PDF slides), originally given to a business-technical audience in 2014.  So this is more a motivational talk on text mining, why it is useful and why it is difficult.
