New York, New York (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
Speakers from Huffington Post, American Express, IBM, MIT Media Lab, and Gnip will be featured at the upcoming Sentiment Analysis Symposium & Workshops (http://sentimentsymposium.com) March 5-6 in New York at the New York Academy of Sciences. The conference will spotlight solutions that discover business value in opinions and attitudes mined from the vast array of Big Data sources and will provide a unique opportunity for attendees to learn about sentiment technologies, how they are applied, the return on investment, and how to select the best available solution options.
The one-day symposium on March 6 will be preceded by two tracks of half-day “human analytics” workshops on March 5. The first, a business track designed for business users, consultants, solution providers, and developers, will feature workshops on Digital Measurement and Customer Intelligence. The second, a technology track, will offer a Practical Sentiment Analysis tutorial followed by a Technology and Innovation session designed for analytically sophisticated attendees, developers and researchers.
“The Sentiment Analysis Symposium represents a great opportunity to learn more about how to apply analytics that drive business value and help organizations become more people centric,” said Marie Wallace, Analytics Strategist at IBM who will be speaking on “Engagement: The Unspoken Connection.” “I am thrilled to both present and sponsor the 2014 symposium.”
Professor Rosalind Picard, founder and director of the Affective Computing Research Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab, is slated to deliver a March 6 keynote on “Computing Emotion, Insights, and Decisions.” Afternoon presentations will cover leading-edge text, speech, and video analysis technologies and their business applications.
“Participating at this symposium has been a terrific platform for customer interactions and provides us with a unique opportunity to hear about emerging technologies and innovative business applications," said Jeff Catlin, CEO of symposium-sponsor Lexalytics. “I consider it a must-attend event for our industry.”
The symposium is designed for executives, strategists, business analysts, and staff working in marketing, finance, social media, customer service and support, quality, and online commerce.
