Ríssola, Esteban A. ; Crestani, Fabio (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2021 ; 2021INFO009.

Language use acts as an indicator of the individuals’ current mental state, personality and even personal values. In this thesis, we focus on language analysis to study two closely related processes which encompass integral components of...

Khayati, Mourad ; Arous, Ines ; Tymchenko, Zakhar ; Cudré-Mauroux, Philippe

In: Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment, 2020, vol. 14, no. 3, p. 294-306
