The tutorial, entitled ‘Techniques and Applications for Sentiment Analysis’ is designed for advanced users, developers, consultants, and others who seek to understand the technology behind the tools they're using (or hope to build). Digital Trowel’s award winning, patent-pending Sentiment Engine, developed and designed by Professor Feldman and his team at Digital Trowel, is at the heart of a number of Digital Trowel products, such as The Stock Sonar, the ultimate decision support tool for traders and investors, providing a one-glance quantified assessment of the financial, news and social media sentiment relevant to trading decisions
“It’s an honor to have been selected to present the keynote tutorial at the 2013 Sentiment Analysis Symposium,” Professor Feldman says. “As a professor, and a businessman, having the opportunity to share our technology, with peers and other professionals, in such a high profile environment is a testament to the importance and the value of what we’ve developed at Digital Trowel. Digital Trowel’s Sentiment Engine will change the digital landscape as far as how business is conducted with, and through, the media.”
The Sentiment Analysis Symposium is an annual business-focused conference held in New York on May 7th and 8th. The symposium aims to teach business users about the impact that technological solutions can have in consumer reactions in social media, news and enterprise.
