Some of My Stuff
- Sentiment Analyzed News:
natural language processing engine. written from scratch with no 3rd party components. watching and analyzing news articles from more than 2,000+ news sources in real-time.
collected data can be sorted and filtered by various elements such as people, company names and tickers mentioned, relevant keywords, negativity, positivity, and more.
while doing all this, the system learns to get smarter and better. My algorithm was recently adopted by Hearst Corporation (San Francisco Chronicle, Houston Chronicle, etc).
