Personal profile

Personal Statement

Developing and evaluating new and emerging artificial intelligence (AI) methods to extract useful information from unstructured financial text datasets. In particular, I am applying B.E.R.T to Earnings Call Transcripts to unearth sentiment within the calls and evalaute any relationships said sentiment has with financial market movements. To add an extra element to my thesis I have also been researching multimodal sentiment analysis techniques - particularly the combination of text + audio. If successful, I will be combining PRAAT and B.E.R.T to extensively analyse the characteristics produced in earnings calls.

 

Drawing earnings call data from FinnHub (https://finnhub.io/), I will be attempting to add to the literature the first classified dataset of its kind. If successful, this dataset could be used by a plethora of academics to continue bringing the area of research forward.
