At least 2 reference(s) must be provided.
Our project aims at developing natural language processing, text mining, machine learning/deep learning, big data, and data science based software tools to collect event information from news articles. We analyze news articles that are collected from emerging countries such as India, China, South Africa, Brazil, and Mexico in English, Portuguese, and Spanish. The tasks that we tackle are related to data collection and management, information extraction, and text classification. We expect trainees to be keen on learning and applying relevant concepts and methods to our project. Our project is a European Research Council Project (ERC) and yields global scale and high quality research output. Please find more information on our website (emw.ku.edu.tr/). The open positions are in the scope of the second work package (WP2).
