Text and Data Mining Community of Practice — Public Interest Technology

Text and Data Mining Community of Practice — Public Interest Technology

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Sylvester A. Johnson, Associate Vice Provost for Public Interest Technology and founding director of the Virginia Tech Center for Humanities, will join our next Text Data Mining (TDM) community of practice meeting. Dr. Johnson will share his insights on the critical role TDM plays in Public Interest Technology, exploring the ethical landscape, social impact, and transformative possibilities of TDM in serving the public good.

His talk will delve into the responsibilities of TDM practitioners to ensure that our methodologies and applications align with broader societal values and contribute positively to public discourse. This session is an opportunity to engage with pressing questions about the intersection of technology, ethics, and public interest, fostering a dialogue that is both meaningful and actionable.

Join us to deepen our understanding of how TDM can be a powerful tool in the realization of technology that not only advances research but also embodies the principles of equity, transparency, and inclusivity.
