This week we have two visitors to the Centre. Nuria Franco-Guillen from Griffith University is visiting all week and is giving a seminar on Thursday morning at our regular ARGi session (10am in the ARG lab). She works with John Parkinson at Griffith on a project tracking the national conversation around key political issues and they are interested in using some of our argument mining techniques to process very large data sets.
On Friday we are joined by Alejando Ramos Soto from the University of Santiago de Compostela and currently a visiting researcher at the University of Aberdeen. Following our work delivering analytics for the BBC, Alejandro is here to work on the connection between Natural Language Generation Techniques and debate analytics. He’ll be giving a talk in the ARG lab at 11.30 on Friday.
A stimulating week!
