“Humanists know the subjects we study are complex. So on the rare occasions when we describe them with numbers at all, we tend to proceed cautiously. Maybe too cautiously. Distant readers have spent a lot of time, for instance, just convincing colleagues that it might be okay to use numbers for exploratory purposes.”

“What if you could identify the applause in every recording in the PennSound archive? With that information, you might ask who receives the most applause, which poems by a given author are most likely to spur an audience response, and which venues lend themselves to the warmest reception. In the following we present our initial work toward using machine learning to answer just such questions.”

The theme, inspired by the centenary of the start of World War I, was “Music From The War To End All Wars.” Speakers Forum airedPart I, featuring a talk by UW dean Robert Stacey, this past January.”

“Band is not a hobby; it’s a life. We put so much time into it. Practice is Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On game days, we have to be ready four hours before kickoff. And then after the games, we have fifth quarter where we perform as people leave the stadium. And then there’s sixth quarter, where those of us over 21 finish our band duties and then play for the tailgaters.”
