High-quality open Tamil language texts are difficult to source, often requiring substantial cleaning/processing in order to be used for digital scholarship and application development purposes. The Digital Tamil Studies project, based at the UTSC library has been developing partnerships to create better quality Tamil text data for machine processing. This subject is intertwined with many other activities such as text analysis, natural language processing, development of multilingual digital repositories and the Digital Tamil Studies community writ large. Please join us for a roundtable with Tamil computing practitioners and users discussing projects and developments in this area.

Presentations:

  • Current State of Open Tamil Datasets - Ravi Annaswamy (Information Architect)
  • Python Libraries for Tamil Computing - Muthu Annamalai (Software Engineer)
  • Linked and Structured Tamil Data for Machine Learning - Saatviga Sudhahar (Machine Learning Scientist)
  • Tamil Computing Needs for Libraries - Natkeeran L. Kanthan (Applications Developer)

Presentations will be followed by discussions.

Research and Writing Seminars: Develop Your Scholarly Voice. Each session in this suite of four interactive seminars integrates the learning of academic research and writing skills and is taught by a librarian in collaboration with a writing instructor. The goal of each seminar is to help you develop your own voice as an emerging scholar by enabling you to identify, situate and substantiate your arguments in the context of the scholarly discussion taking place in your discipline. The seminars are designed for humanities and social sciences undergraduate students. Graduate students might wish to consider the research-related skills offerings in the Graduate Professional Skills Program.

Take any three (3) of the four (4) seminars to earn credit on your Co-Curricular Record.
