Details:

Join us as speaker James W. Pennebaker, Professor of Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin, presents Computer-based Text Analysis and Social Media: Using Words to Understand People.

The ways people speak and write leave clues about the ways they think, feel, and behave. A new generation of text analysis methods now allows researchers to explore what people are talking about and how they are talking. Findings concerning the detection of emotional state, deception, leadership, intelligence, personality, and general thinking styles will be discussed. A broader discussion will focus on some of the theoretical, practical, and ethical challenges of analyzing everyday language.

Sponsored by the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences.
