Sentiment analysis has developed as a technology that applies machine learning and makes a rapid assessment of the sentiments expressed in news releases. News (events) move the market and are measured quantitatively. Analysts and investors digest financial news and their perceptions impact the market and move stock prices. This conference presents the current state of the art in this fast-emerging field.

This is the 5th conference on this topic organized by UNICOM Seminars Ltd.
