I am here in Barcelona for my 4th summer, participating in the Georgia Tech, College of Computing’s International Study Abroad Programs in Barcelona, ESP. Teaching two classes and spending time with 64 student participants, 4 teaching assistants, and 6 faculty from GA Tech. Spending time with Faculty at Facultat d’Informàtica de Barcelona – UPC, our hosts […]
Sentiment analysis predicts the presence of positive or negative emotions in a text document. In this paper we consider higher-dimensional extensions of the sentiment concept, which represent a richer set of human emotions. Our approach goes beyond previous work in that our model contains a continuous manifold rather than a finite set of human emotions.
The Computation + Journalism Symposium 2013, held Jan 31 – Feb 1, 2013, at Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, USA was a huge success. Please see the videos here of all the sessions. See me discuss computational journalism with Phil Meyer, and my slides and take-away points from the closing session.
Join us for the 2nd Computation + Journalism Symposium 2013 in Atlanta, GA on Jan 31 – Feb 1, 2013 What role does computation have in the practice of journalism today and in the near future? As computer-driven forces like automation and aggregation increasingly alter the role of journalists and journalism in society, how can computation become a […]
Here is an excerpt from a Google Research Blog on our Video Stabilization on YouTube. Now even more improved. One thing we have been working on within Research at Google is developing methods for making casual videos look more professional, thereby providing users with a better viewing experience. Professional videos have several characteristics that differentiate […]
In Spring 2012, I am teaching 2 classes. Advanced Computational Photography (CS 8803 PHO) [with Grant Schindler] This is an advanced topics class in Computational Photography, building on my intro class and explores technical aspects of pictures, and more precisely the capture and depiction of reality on a 2D medium. The scientific, perceptual, and artistic […]
Computational Journalism is defined as the application of computation to the activities of journalism such as information gathering, organization, communication, and dissemination of information, while upholding values of journalism such as accuracy and verifiability. Journalists are increasingly adopting and using the proliferation of open-source tools and embracing different styles of journalism. Explore how newsrooms are […]
Just did a session at the Future Media Fest at GA Tech on Computational Journalism. Journalism and related aspects information gathering, verification and distribution have significantly changed in recent times with the growth and pervasiveness of Computation, Information, and Networking Technologies. In this session, we will discuss how computation is now completely embedded into each […]
Happy 2010! In Spring Term 2010, I am teaching the following two classes. Computation + Journalism (CS 4464 / CS 6465) This class is aimed at understanding the computational and technological advancements in the area of journalism. Primary focus is on the study of technologies for developing new tools for (a) sense-making from diverse news information […]
