The Distributed Little Red Hen Lab is a distributed laboratory and consortium for research on multimodal communication. It is directed jointly by Francis Steen and Mark Turner. See Red Hen's twitter feed. See Crowing Rooster's News & Announcements. We have just been approved for GSoC 2015; see our Ideas Page.
The Distributed Little Red Hen Lab, also known as "Red Hen Lab" or "Red Hen," utilizes sophisticated videoconferencing to connect researchers at many nodes internationally for collaboration. We are grateful to Information Technology Services at Case Western Reserve University for providing the infrastructure for this online collaboration. Principal nodes of the research network include
Red Hen conducts transdisciplinary research in multimodal communications, linguistics, computational linguistics, cognitive science, neuroscience, education, statistics, media effects studies, political communication, and library science.
Red Hen builds tools across a range of tasks, including automated data acquisition, distributed data storage, data enhancement, joint text, sound, and vision parsing, statistical analysis, multimodal search engines, user interfaces, presentation tools, publishing platforms, and pedagogical applications. We develop open-source software at RedHenLab.
