EMBEDDIA Workshop – presenting EMBEDDIA tools

On June 21st, we had an engaging workshop about a part of our EMBEDDIA Assistant Tool called Texta Toolkit. Around 20 corpus linguists, computational linguists, NLP-related researchers, and journalists across Europe got an overview of Texta Toolkit and a demo of its functions. Attendees were able to test the Toolkit themselves with the Aylien Covid news dataset and answer research questions like “What are the higher risk factors of developing a severe case of coronavirus?”, “How has China or Wuhan-related news frequency changed over time?”. The workshop was an excellent opportunity to introduce the EMBEDDIA Assistant tool and obtain feedback from possible users on its functionalities and accessibility.
