IIIT Hyderabad was a host to Dr. Owen Rambow, Senior Research Scientist at Center for Computational Learning Systems, Columbia University. Dr. Rambow is a Visitor with the Language Technologies Research Center (LTRC) under the KCIS program. He delivered a talk on "Language Use in Written Dialog: Beliefs, Gender, Social Networks, and Power". Dr. Owen presented a series of studies performed at Columbia University whose aim was to understand how linguistic choices in a dialog are affected by various aspects of the communicative setting, such as beliefs, gender, power, and the underlying social network. Specifically, he has investigated how power relations affect linguistic choices, both lexical choices and choices in terms of dialog acts. There are clear differences in language use between people in power and people without power. These differences allow us to predict who has power in a dialog.

The LGBTQ (queer) community is a minority that is largely marginalized, oppressed, and forced into hiding by society. The root of this problem is often ignorance.candidly speaking about their life experiences and how being queer has impacted them. This talk with students and various members of IIIT Hyderabad aimed at having a discussion on life experiences and how being
