Penn Libraries Presents: Angelica Rivera on AI and Topic Modeling of Research Methods in Scientific Articles

Penn Libraries presents Angelica Rivera, Bollinger Fellow in Library Innovation. Angelica will talk with us about her work with Topic Modeling of Research Methods in Scientific Articles.

Due to technical difficulties during her February 28 event, we've asked Angelica to present on her project a second time. 

RSVP is required for attending in-person or receiving a zoom link for the event.

About the talk

Can we use machine learning to text mine articles to identify and track statistical methods across disciplines to help students acquire useful knowledge about methods; researchers to find collaborators; and help librarians to sharpen the focus of research and pedagogical supports? Although journal articles often have keywords which are author or reader-assigned, the keywords may not include statistical methods used and rather focus on discipline-relevant topics. Angelica’s project focuses on developing 1) a machine learning pipeline to automatically assign statistical and computational methods labels to scientific research articles and 2) tools for students, researchers, and subject librarians to navigate and make sense of the associated bibliometric information. Come learn about the framework behind the label assignment and let us know what information you would like to see included in the tool production phase.
