eScience Research Engineer Lars Buitinck has developed a method for automatically identifying emotions. Mapping the emotions which are aroused by a film could for example prove useful for recommending films which a user might find interesting (like Netflix does, for example). Lars presented his method during the 37th edition of the international “European Conference on Information Retrieval” in Vienna.

The Netherlands eScience Center is pleased to announce the initiation of four new Path-Finding Projects. The projects are intended to provide the opportunity to rapidly meet short-term scientific challenges, serve as a pilot for future research projects, address immediate technological goals, or investigate the potential to initiate larger projects.
