Genetic Algorithms for feature selection within sentiment analysis
Research Field:Computer Science
Lead PI:Prof Kurshid Ahmed
Abstract:My work is looking at the effect financial news has on future market performance. Either as a proxy to investor sentiment or having a direct effect on the \'mood\' of the market. My current work is looking at the development of a system for improved criteria for term selection. Rather than relying on subjectively designed dictionaries I am to develop a means for developing custom dictionaries based on the index in a purely objective manner.
