Project: Measurement of Opinion based on Social Networking Data

This research project explores methods for quantitative measurement of individual's opinion based on social networking data (in contrast to previous NLP methods based on text content). Different methodologies will be examined and compared, including methods from statistical analysis (Bayesian inference), network science (Correspondence Analysis) and machine learning (Neural Embedding). In particular, we aim to improve and evaluate the Neural Embedding method which is perhaps the most promising method.

The following talk slides provided a brief introduction to the three opinion measurement methods. 

The following paper introduced the Neural Embedding method for opinion measurement based on networking data.
