The Crow lab at Purdue, made possible by the EVPRP grant, has allowed our five new Crow interns to interact in a physically productive and inviting space. We’ve been quite busy at Crow, especially considering the wide range of projects that all of us contribute to. Here’s an outline of what we’ve been working on, and how the lab helps us do so.

We launched CIABATTA, Corpus In A Box: Automated Tools, Tutorials, & Advising, on December 6th, 2021. Attendees from all over the world learned how they can build their own corpora to aid them in research and teaching, regardless of their previous coding experience.

The Crow team is thrilled to announce the release of Corpus in a Box: Automated Tools, Tutorials, & Advising (CIABATTA). We invite you to attend our launch event and open house: Mon Dec 6, 10am; Tue Dec 7, 8am (US/Arizona time).
