The two-day workshop conveys basic knowledge of text classification workflows (document and sentence classification, e.g. for identifying relevant documents or sentiment analysis) and sequence tagging forr information extraction (e.g. named entities or protest event data such as protest form, issues, or number f participants). The workflow presented in the workshop is based on neural transformer networks (BERT and successor models) and includes the following steps:

  1. 1) handling of typical data formats for model training and prediction (CSV, XMI CAS, CoNLL),
  2. 2) application of pre-trained models,
  3. 3) training or fine-tuning of models with own data for new tasks,
  4. 4) hyper-parameter optimisation and evaluation of models.


The workshop includes short lecture content and plenty of time for exercises with prepared Jupyter 
Python notebooks running in the Google Colab platform in the browser. For machine learning, the Flair NLP framework and the Huggingface library of transformers based on Pytorch will be used.

Prerequisites
Basic knowledge in Python programming, handling of Pandas data frames, optional: familiarisation with the Flair NLP framework

Preparation
register a Google account (exercises will be done with Google Colab)

Data set
Test events in local news texts (will be provided)

In this session, the Working Group will have a special guest - Jan Helmdag from the SOFI, Stockholm.

Jan is taking care of the data collection for the "Social Policy Indicators" (SPIN), previously SCIP, the "Social Citizenship Indicator Program".

The Working Group will discuss with Jan their current way of collecting and coding data on generosity and coverage, future plans, how they deal with harmonization topics – and of course, other topics brought up by the Working Group members.

Every CRC member interested in this topic and insights to the SPIN/SCIP data is welcome.

In the context of the CRC different projects analyse legal texts from Labour Law and Social Law. Due to the different research questions of the projects there are differences in the exact mode of analysis. Through discussions with Prof. Becker, a leading expert for international social law, we would like to gain a better understanding of the opportunities and limitations of our approaches, as well as obtain a better grasp on the similarities and differences.

The workshop will be attended by members of projects that specifically work on the analysis of legal texts. In addition, we also invite researchers in other projects interested in the subject to join us. This promises to be a good opportunity to discuss an important subject touching upon issues of methodology and measurement from an interdisciplinary perspective with a high-profile legal scholar. We would like to apologize for the late notification. In case you would like to join the workshop please contact Kerem Gabriel Öktem (oektem@uni-bremen.de)

Dr Avner Ofrath from the Department of History will share some insights about the various steps involved in archival research:

  • defining the role of archives
  • finding/locating relevant documents
  • understanding different types of documents and contextualising their origins
  • issues around analysis
  • correct referencing
  • ethical issues (e.g., data extraction from South to North)
  • how to account for all the things that are not documented?


The participants will also reflect on their (past and future) uses of archives and historical documents.

For preparation (not mandatory): Anver Ovrath's article on what an archive actually is and does: https://www.oarplatform.com/on-leaving-the-archive/

Please register with Anna Wolkenhauer. The workshop will take place in the InIIS seminar room but also via Zoom. Anna will share log-in details upon request.
