Engagement and Diversity in the World of Data Science

While data science has without a doubt proven its enormous potential over the last decade or so, the new field is still trying to find its place in academia and society at large. In the 2019 spring lecture series, The Copenhagen Center for Social Data Science (SODAS) has invited scholars that will present their work that in one aspect or another address questions of, and experiments with, diversity and public engagement in the world of data science.

The Glass Ceiling in the Natural Language Processing Research Community

Our second speaker of the spring lecture series is Natalie Schluter, Associate Professor and Head of study program at the Department of Computer Science, IT University Copenhagen.

In this talk, I present some empirical evidence based on a rigorously studied mathematical model for bi-populated networks, that a glass ceiling within the field of Natural Language Processing has developed since the mid 2000s.

The lecture will take place at SODAS' new location in building 1, 2nd floor, room 26 (1.2.26) of the CSS Campus, University of Copenhagen, from 11.00 am to 12.30 pm.
