LT-Accelerate

LT-Accelerate: LT-Accelerate is a conference designed to help businesses, researchers and public administrations discover business value via Language Technology.

From the about page:

LT-Accelerate is a joint production of LT-Innovate, the European Association of the Language Technology Industry, and Alta Plana Corporation, a Washington DC based strategy consultancy headed by analyst Seth Grimes.

Held December 4-5, 2014 in Brussels, the website reports seven (7) interviews with key speakers and slides from thirty-eight speakers.

Not as in depth as papers nor as useful as videos of the presentations but still capable of sparking new ideas as you review the slides.

For example, the slides from Multi-Dimensional Sentiment Analysis by Stephen Pulman made me wonder what sentiment detection design would be appropriate for the Michael Brown grand jury transcripts?

Sentiment detection has been successfully used with tweets (140 character limit) and I am reliably informed that most of the text strings in the Michael Brown grand jury transcript are far longer than one hundred and forty (140) characters. 😉

Any sentiment detectives in the audience?
