Tune in to The Graduates this Tuesday @ 9AM for an interview with Lucy Li from Berkeley’s School of Information and Katie Keith, who just graduated with a PhD from the University of Massachusetts Amhert’s Computer Science program. Lucy and Katie host a podcast called Diaries of Social Data Research, so tune in for a chance to hear them tell you more about their show. But also listen to hear them weigh in on everything from the nature of “information” itself to the role that Big Tech plays in shaping academic computer science research. Also, you’ll hear them explain what natural language processing is and how it helps them better understand how people interact, both online and off.
The Graduates, featuring graduate student research at Cal, is broadcast every other Tuesday on KALX 90.7 FM. Past episodes are available to listen and download free on iTunes or online. This episode of The Graduates is hosted by Andrew Saintsing, a PhD candidate in the Department of Integrative Biology.
