7th Sentiment Symposium to feature Human Analytics Solutions, Big Data Emotion, Connection, Intent

The 7th Sentiment Analysis Symposium, March 5-6, 2014 in New York City, will feature presentations, panels, and workshops covering Digital Measurement, Intelligent Customer Experience, Sentiment Analysis, and Speech and Text Analytics. Call for speakers until Oct 28.

NEW YORK, October 21, 2013 -- Big Data Analytics authority Seth Grimes has announced the seventh Sentiment Analysis Symposium (, the premier conference for social intelligence and cognitive computing, slated for March 5-6, 2014 in New York.

Sentiment Analysis Symposium

The symposium will feature speakers and panelists from industry-leading and innovative organizations. Sessions will cover business applications that include Customer Experience Management, Consumer and Market Research, Social Media Analytics, Media and Publishing, and Financial Services as well as developments and trends in academic and industry research. Grimes stated that he is designing the symposium program, to be announced in early November, 2013, to appeal to a broad range of business analysts, executives, and technologists, with talks covering brand management, customer service, finance, healthcare, marketing, advertising and public relations, and legal-domain applications as well as breakthrough technologies.

The symposium will be preceded, on March 5, 2014, by two tracks of optional, half-day workshops. The "human analytics" business track will feature workshops on Digital Measurement and Intelligent Customer Experience. A technology track will feature a reprise of the symposium's Practical Sentiment Analysis tutorial followed by, for the third time in seven symposiums, a Technology and Innovation session designed for analytically sophisticated attendees, developers, and researchers.

Symposium organizer Seth Grimes announced that Jason Baldridge, a computational linguist at the Univ. of Texas at Austin and co-founder of start-up People Pattern, will teach the sentiment-analysis tutorial. Grimes also announced a special Technology-session segment on accuracy evaluation, designed to help businesses evaluate competing vendor claims and choose solutions that best meet their needs. Lexalytics, a symposium sponsor whose Salience product, a multi-lingual text-analysis engine, is widely licensed for industrial sentiment-analysis applications, is expected to participate.

Symposium organizer Seth Grimes is the leading industry analyst covering text analytics and sentiment analysis technologies and the market. Grimes 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."
