The Australian Pioneer HASS Research Data Commons projects, ATAP and LDaCA, aim to establish cloud-based, collaborative, data-driven research platforms with generalised workflows for text and language researchers across diverse research disciplines. The Sydney Informatics Hub (SIH) and Sydney Corpus Lab (SCL) are the local arms of these national projects and have developed a series of text analytic tools in the form of online Jupyter Notebooks.

During the afternoon session of the USyd Digital Humanities Day 2023, the SIH will host a combined workshop to demonstrate and teach several recently or soon-to-be-released tools from the ATAP text analytic tool collections. These tools include Discursis for analysing human conversational texts, Juxtorpus for advanced corpus slicing and comparison, Semantic Tagger for semantically tagging every word in your text collections, and Quotation Tool for NLP algorithm-based quotation extraction, analysis, and visualisation. All tools will be hosted on the cloud and no coding experience or software installation is required. Participants just need to bring their devices for some hands-on practices in the web browser and can continue using these convenient tools for their own projects afterwards.

The workshops will be held both in the Fisher Library and over Zoom. In addition to the workshops, the SIH will offer free consultations and Hacky Hours for statistics and data sciences in person. We look forward to seeing you soon!
