Writing analytics: online training in rhetorical parsing

As part of building training resources to upskill the teams in different kinds of text analytics, UTS:CIC’s Honorary Associate Dr Ágnes Sándor (Naver Labs Europe) has been running approx monthly online sessions. In these, Ágnes introduces the  concept matching model, and its rule-based implementation in the open source Athanor server. This powers AcaWriter’s ability to detect academic rhetorical moves, which in combination with other text analysis services in TAP, is being tuned and evaluated with student writing of different sorts.

Check out the replays and presentation and exercise slides.
