Kenneth Benoit - Why you should stop using other text mining packages and embrace quanteda

Three months ago we finished Why R? 2020 conference. One of the memorable moments of the conference were invited highlighted talks! Today we would like to remind you about the talk by Kenneth Benoit (from London School of Economics). The video from the recording is at the end of the post.

The text analysis package quanteda is now a mature package with a large user base, and interwoven with a growing family of related packages for machine learning, text conversion, part-of-speech tagging and dependency parsing, and sentiment analysis. I outline the reasons why you should be using it and what it can do for your natural language processing and text analysis needs.
