Erez Lieberman-Aiden and Jean-Baptiste Michel, both at Harvard University, recently led a team that published a paper in Science magazine describing the quantitative analysis of historical trends using millions of digitized books, and that concurrently released the ngrams.googlelabs.org browser (which AHA Today noted last month in What We’re Reading). They will discuss their work in a newly added session this Saturday at the 125th Annual Meeting. See the session details below:
