Join Visible Technologies’ chief scientist, Shawn Rutledge, as he discusses how and why science can be on par with human sentiment analysis, the barriers facing the industry in embracing sentiment analysis, what needs to be done to break those barriers, and why the industry must fundamentally change the way they think about sentiment.
