This Fall, DDDI is working together with the Research Data & Digital Scholarship librarians to develop two new programs at Penn. One fostering student-led data driven projects within the Penn community, and the second an AI Interest Group discussing applications and issues surrounding new advances in generative AI. Please join us for the first meeting in each series on September 26th and November 7th, respectively.


September 26th at 2pm

Speed Networking for Data Driven Research & Digital Scholarship

Meet like-minded student researchers and build a community around data and digital projects of all kinds. This is a unique opportunity to build and expand your network for professional growth and development, learn about research projects that include data and/or digital elements from the source. Refreshments will be provided. Mingle with friends and meet new ones. Led by RDDS librarian Jaj Karajgikar, for more information about this event and how to register, visit the RDDS page for the event, here. Please note that registration is required.


November 7th at 10am

AI Ethics and Sentiment Analysis

Recent developments in AI have made automated tools for sentiment analysis — the detection of positive and negative sentiment in writing and speech — capable of detecting toxic language in social media. But what are the limitations of these methods, and who gets to decide what language is toxic? Join us for a discussion on these issues led by RDDS librarian Stephen Hall. More information about the event and how to register can be found on the RDDS page for the event, here.
