Language and image analytics
In a nutshell
Methods and tools of content analytics need to become more powerful and trustworthy.
At the same time, they enrich, deepen and complement four largest societal subsystems: economics, media, law and science itself. Therefore, the fundamental research questions will tackle public policy making, corporate digitalization, transparency in politics and society, or political argumentation, to name a few.
Our research relates to the social good, such as
- the assessment of the social credit system
- corporate digitalization (content analytics and economics)
- informed policy decisions on crime and punishment
- empowering citizens to check fairness of criminal sentences (argument analysis in law)
- critical assessment of transparency in politics and society
- empowering researchers for better science quality (content analytics for sciences)
- framing in public policy making
- quality of political argumentation (content analytics for media and political studies)
Example: Argument Mining for the Social Good
We research methods for extracting arguments from texts. These are used differently:
- to enrich the case law analysis with references to arguments and their quality interpretatively (law),
- to evaluate social media with regard to arguments and public perceptions of controversial topics (media),
- to discover argumentative indicators for explaining the movements on financial markets (economics).
