Do you like birds? Do you wonder what kind of birds are on ASU Tempe Campus? Join ASU Library's Naturespace on a birdwatching tour around the Tempe campus, where we can view the different birds that live there. After seeking out birds on campus, we will head to Naturespace and discuss our findings. Meet us up in Hayden Library's Naturespace 311E before we head out to explore. Bring your binoculars, a pair of sturdy walking shoes and go birding with us.

You're invited to visit the "Nature Imagined" exhibit at Noble Library on the Tempe campus. On display from Jan. 4 until March 10, this exhibit is open for ASU students, faculty and staff as well as visitors. Check library hours for exact times.

It’s been over 50 years since the era of mass incarceration started in the United States. Over the past decade, and especially in the pandemic, California has made major changes in its criminal justice system to reduce its prison population and sentences. But it has been slower to develop and invest in new systems to support Californians as they transition out of jail or prison into workplaces. What are the best ideas and models for finding good jobs for the formerly incarcerated?

In this open lab, Digital Humanities Analyst Namig Abbasov, will begin by taking an intuitive approach to understand the principles underlying supervised machine learning.

We will then draw parallels between supervised machine learning and predictive modeling. Following that, we will explore various supervised learning algorithms designed for solving classification problems and review metrics for these classification techniques.

The Data Science and Analytics Unit at the ASU Library is excited to announce the return of our Volunteer Open Projects. We have four Spring 2024 Open Projects to choose from this semester. The Volunteer Open Projects are an opportunity to get involved with real-world issues, to collaborate, learn, and expand your knowledge and expertise in data science and analytics, regardless of your discipline or level of experience.

This Open Lab will introduce and explore key concepts in Artificial Intelligence. The aim is to understand applications, but also think through implications for your own research and professional interests.

In this Open Lab, Digital Humanities Analyst Namig Abbasov, will explore how AI tools reshape social science and digital humanities research, not only opening new research avenues but also brining new challenges. It will start with a quick overview of what AI is and then cover natural language processing (NLP) techniques for text analysis, sentiment analysis, topic modeling and language translation.  We will also discuss ethical implications and potential future applications of AI in social sciences and digital humanities.

In this Open Lab, Digital Humanities Analyst Namig Abbasov will utilize Python to navigate the key stages of quantitative data analysis in social science research. First, we will preprocess data, recoding and transforming necessary variables to ensure that the dataset is ready for statistical analysis. Subsequently, we will employ Python libraries to conduct Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA), making statistical graphs and various data visualizations to illustrate patterns, detect possible anomalies and understand overall data structure.
