We develop a framework and tools for applying a computer‐assisted context analysis system and find that it achieves levels of accuracy comparable to humans for about 80% less effort when starting from scratch (no labeled examples). The system is presented using a case study of Congressional bill titles as a proxy for the full text of Congressional bills. We(More)
