Title: Exploring large annotated datasets for interesting information
Name of session facilitator: Diana Maynard
Approximate duration: 1 hour
Skill level: beginner
Come and play with MIMIR, our tools for semantic search and visualisation of annotated data. Ask complex queries over huge amounts of data. For example: which newspapers talked most positively about Europe before the UK referendum? Were regional issues talked about more than national ones by those who wanted to leave? Which male actors born in France have talked about gay marriage in the BBC news? In this session we will use MIMIR to explore several annotated datasets and see what we can find out. We might issue some challenges for finding the most interesting facts about a topic, or to answer certain questions the fastest.
Prerequisite: no experience of anything required. Bring laptop connected to the Internet!
