Linguistics and Data Science in Collaboration

Session No. 6-7
Title Linguistics and Data Science in Collaboration
Session organizer Shimada Masaharu
Date & Time October 8, December 10

The purpose of this session is to provide opportunities with researchers from various fields to share recent trends of the study of language based on various kinds of data resources. Recent big or contexualized data have opened a new possibility for linguistics and related fields, which have been becoming more and more inter-dependent. Thus, the “Trans-Border” or “Interdisciplinary” perspective is necessary.  This session especially focuses on naming and language contact with big data. The organizer hopes that the session will lead participants to be aware of  unexplored reseach areas related to languages.
