I have uploaded my Dissertation Defense slides on Slideshare. If you don’t recall, the title of my dissertation is: “Analysis of Twitter Messages for Sentiment and Insight for use in Stock Market Decision Making.”
I’ve finally got my dissertation proposal defense scheduled! (!!!!)
October 26th is the big day!
For those of you interested, my Dissertation Proposal Title is:
Analysis of Twitter Messages for Sentiment and Insight for use in Stock Market Decision Making
In other words, I’m looking at whether you can actually use twitter messages for decision support…in this case, for investing decisions. There’s been quite a lot of research conducted in this area of using forums, blogs and Twitter messages to determine bias for the stock market – and I hope to add just a small nugget of knew knowledge to the literature.
For those of you that don’t know the process, the dissertation proposal defense is the last real step before actually doing the dissertation research.
I’m at that stage…finally. I’ve been working on my doctorate since 2007 and I’m finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel….I just hope it isn’t a train about to crash into me 😉
I’ll share more details (slides, perhaps a paper) in the coming weeks.
