Applying linguistics to real-world cases – profiling

My degree thesis was about the development of a Mathematical and Statistical Algorithm that is able to perform, or better to help perform, linguistic analysis on a text so as to discover, identify, and evidence bias in speech. The algorithm can be used both as a standalone tool or, as I use it daily, in…

My Thesis – A Mathematical and Statistical Algorithm to detect bias in discourse

One of the most amazing things about writing my thesis in LINFO at the faculty of Lettere at Universit√† di Roma Tor Vergata was the development of an algorithm for the detection of bias in written and oral speech. I proposed an iteration (using convolutional networks, Chi-square distribution, and some other ... spices), also applicable…
