Arnold Overwijk - homepage

I am a 2nd year Masters student in LTI and my advisor is Alexander Hauptmann. My research is mainly focussed on multimedia retrieval and analysis, on which I apply my knowledge about my main interests: Machine Learning and Algorithms. One of the projects I'm currently working on (and most related to this class) is predicting perspectives, for example a text about politics might be written from a republican or democratic perspective.

In the past, I have also been working at a company [1], where I have also been working on Opinion Mining. The goal was to give our customers (organisations) insight into online opinions, topics and trends about their organisation or brand.
