  1. Principles of data processing from human-computer interaction viewpoint.

I would like to invite FIMS & Linguistics communities to attend a talk by a Text Analytics practitioner from one of the IBM partner companies. The talk was originally planned for my students in an introductory NLP course (LIS9732/9832 details here) but as the speaker and I have been negotiating the talk’s content, it occurred to me that many of our other students can benefit from such a general orientation to “IT industry and IT innovation 101”, as Dr. Popolov puts it. So, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to work in tech. industry, please stop by!
