Text data is naturally messy and challenging to analyze. Different elements of Natural Language Processing can help show patterns and signal out of text data. In this short course, we will go through an introduction to NLP and show how to create meaningful conclusions from text data. This course includes hands-on exercises in the open-source software package R.

*Familiarity with R is strongly recommended.
