DC NLP December Meetup Announcement: Open Mic Night!

Curious about techniques and methods for applying data science to unstructured text? Join us at the DC NLP December Meetup!

Let’s experiment with something different this month for the meetup format. At past events, we’ve had either one 60-minute talk or three 20-minute talks. For December, we’re going to try out an “open mic night” format. Here’s how it’ll work:

  • Everyone who wants to (time permitting) will get 5 to 10 minutes to talk about anything they like. You can give a quick talk about something you’ve been working on, ask a question about a problem you’ve been struggling with, run a demo for a interesting tool you’ve found, etc.
  • The only rule in terms of content is that it must be related to natural language processing.
  • You can use slides or a computer, but it’s certainly not required. You can just get up in front of the group and ramble on for 5-10 minutes if you like. We won’t judge you.
  • Essentially, it’ll be an hour or so of impromptu lightning talks, hopefully with a high degree of audience interaction.
