As part of the OpeNER hackathon we decided to build a prototype that would allow us to compare how different countries feel about several topics. We used the OpeNER pipeline to get the sentiment from a set of newspaper articles we gathered from media in several languages. Then we aggregated those articles by category and country (using the source of the article or the language it was written in), obtaining the “overall feeling” of each country about each topic.
I’ve finally decided to set up a decent personal page. I have settled for github-pages because I like the idea of keeping my site in a repository and having someone else host and deploy it for me. The site will be really simple, mostly static files. Thanks to Github, Jekyll will automatically generate static pages for my posts every time I commit anything new to this repository.
