Using Natural Language Processing Techniques to Automate ‘Coding’ in Qualitative Research
October 19, 2016
Track: ACM SRC
Qualitative research methods result in large amounts of unstructured text in the form of transcribed interview and fieldnotes. Researchers painstakingly annotate the text with various types of labels in a process known as 'coding'. I take a mixed-methods approach to design and prototype an interactive system based on natural language processing to partially automate the process of coding.
