stated, “The March 2014 Sentiment Analysis Symposium, the seventh, will
bridge technology and business in one of the most exciting applications to
emerge in recent years: solutions that discover business value in opinions
and attitudes mined from the vast array of Big Data sources. I created the
symposium to meet the market’s need for a vendor-neutral meeting ground that
will bring together brands, agencies, consultants, and solution providers.
The symposium and workshops will prove a must-attend event for anyone
serious about ‘Human Analytics,’ about exploiting sentiment, emotion, and
connection in social media, news, and enterprise feedback.”
