Working in Tech It's Not Just for Computational Linguists!

 

Download panelist presentations:  Samantha Beaver   Sam Cooper   Frankie Pennington    Christpher Stewart    Brent Woo

In this webinar, we heard from linguists working in tech who found nontraditional, unexpected paths into the sector, and who continue to find new and interesting ways to express and employ their linguistic skills and interests. They shared their experiences, including things they wish they had known when they were starting on this professional path.

This webinar will be of interest to linguistics students and professionals who work in the technology sector or who are considering doing so. The webinar included panel discussion and Q&A. 

This webinar was sponsored by the LSA's Special Interest Group (SIG) on Linguistics Beyond Academia

Panelists: Samantha Beaver, Founder, Memra Language Services; Sam Cooper, Curriculum Specialist, NoRedInk; Christopher Stewart, Analytical Linguist, Google; Frankie Pennington, Data Collection Administrator, Sensory, Inc.; Brent Woo, Language Engineer, Amazon
