Our Storytelling with Data course provides practical tools for wrangling, analyzing, and interpreting patterns in real-world data. This year, as part of the Social Impact Practicum program at Dartmouth, we partnered with local community organizations to help them gain data-driven insights into their thorniest problems!

We are thrilled to announce a double release of some awesome new science tools, targeted at memory enthusiasts and researchers. The Quail toolbox is aimed at analyzing and visualizing data from memory experiments. The AutoFR toolbox provides a framework for developing list learning experiments on Amazon Mechanical Turk that automatically transcribe spoken recalls into text.
We've also published papers on these toolboxes: [QUAIL PAPER] [AUTOFR PAPER] Read More
