Workshop on Language, Technology, and Society

Motivation

The Workshop on Language, Technology, and Society builds an intellectual community focused on the science of language.  In a welcoming style accessible to an interdisciplinary audience, a series of invited speakers from around Georgia and the United States present their original research on topics such as text-based computational social science; vector representations of word meaning; technology-driven documentation of endangered languages; and language change over time.  The workshop brings together researchers and students interested in the science of language from around Georgia Tech (from Modern Languages, Psychology, and Computer Science), and welcomes students into the research life of the Institute by exposing them to well-presented current work.  Please sign up for linguistics@lists.gatech.edu for announcements of upcoming talks!
