The Open University is offering the PhD Studentship in Topic/Sentiment Tracking and Analysis for talented students in the UK.
With the explosion of people’s attitudes and opinions expressed in social media including blogs, discussion forums, tweets, etc, detecting sentiment or opinion from the Web is becoming an increasingly popular way of interpreting data. Sentiment analysis is concerned with automatically identifying sentiment or opinion expressed in a given piece of text. It finds wide applications in tracking companies’ reputations, finding customers’ opinions about products/services and competitors, monitoring positive or negative trends in social media, etc.
