Do humanists need BERT? | The Stone and the Shell
In this post, I’m going to ask how historical inquiry might be advanced by Transformer-based models of language (like GPT and BERT). These models are handily beating previous benchmarks for natural language understanding. Will they also change historical conclusions based on text analysis? For instance, could BERT help us add information about word order to quantitative models of literary history that previously relied on word frequency? It is a slightly daunting question, because the new methods are not exactly easy to use.

edzer/UseR2019
This tutorial dives into some of the modern spatial and spatiotemporal analysis packages available in R. It will show how support, the spatial size of the area to which a data value refers, plays a role in spatial analysis, and how this is handled in R. It will show how package stars complements package sf for handling spatial time series, raster data, raster time series, and more complex multidimensional data such as dynamic origin-destination matrices.

Three Strategies for Working with Big Data in R · R Views
By default R runs only on data that can fit into your computer’s memory. Hardware advances have made this less of a problem for many users since these days, most laptops come with at least 4-8Gb of memory, and you can get instances on any major cloud provider with terabytes of RAM. But this is still a real problem for almost any data set that could really be called big data.

The fact that R runs on in-memory data is the biggest issue that you face when trying to use Big Data in R. The data has to fit into the RAM on your machine, and it’s not even 1:1. Because you’re actually doing something with the data, a good rule of thumb is that your machine needs 2-3x the RAM of the size of your data.

Explore longitudinal data with brolgar | Credibly Curious
here I will showcase three ideas that I think make workflow significantly more efficient, and help you learn from your data.

Idea 1: Longitudinal data is a (non-typical) time series
Idea 2: An opportunity to explore individuals, with various tools, and maintain information about the whole. We are more than our average.
Idea 3: Quantify features of interest, and link to original series
