Dr. Karl Pazdernik of PNNL will conduct a short course followed by a hands-on workshop on text analytics applied to proliferation detection.  The short course will be offered on May 10, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, and the follow-up hands-on workshop will be conducted May 14, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.  The short course and workshop will be held in 2106 SAS Hall on NCSU’s North Campus.  Please see the below flyer and short course outline.

In the short course, Dr. Pazdernik will instruct students on methods for analyzing text using machine-learning techniques, including identifying content and sentiment.  In the follow-up, hands-on workshop, Dr. Pazdernik will help students analyze text databases specific to nuclear proliferation.  Students will learn to analyze text datasets specific to nuclear proliferation (e.g., the Nuclear Threat Initiative’s Global Incidents and Trafficking Database).
