The University of Bath will host an event on Language Innovation in Online Social Networks.
Title: Language Innovation in Online Social Networks (1 hour talk)
Date, Time and Venue: Tuesday 24 November, 1.15pm-2.15pm, University of Bath, Dept of Computer Science, Bath, BA2 7AY
Speaker: Daniel Kershaw, PhD student, HighWire CDT, Lancaster University
Abstract: Language exists in a constant flux: existing in the duality of social structure and the actions of the agents with the system. As a result, new words come and go from
people's vocabularies - e.g. the recent introduction of `e-cig' and `vape'. However the work required to identify these ‘innovations’ is both time consuming and
subjective. This talk therefore explores the variation in language, and in particular language innovations that occur in and across multiple online social networks (innovations
could be a change of spelling to the introduction of new words), and how such investigations can be performed at scale.
If you are interested in attend this talk, please email Felicia Knowles.

The Science and Engineering Fast Stream is the flagship postgraduate development scheme for scientists and engineers across Government – and it needs people like you.
Science and Engineering Fast Streamers take on a range of roles in multiple government departments, and play an essential role in ensuring the best science underpins the development and application of government policies. This can be by acting as an expert customer, or by developing an evidence base or by undertaking systematic analysis. Science and Engineering Fast Streamers are not bench scientists or technical engineers. Instead, they source, analyse and communicate technical advice and innovative solutions on issues as diverse as climate change, nuclear non-proliferation, defence technology and food production.
Applications to start in September 2016 are open until 30th November 2015.
