The PhD research position focuses on automated profile identification of users based on their social media behaviour across several modalities, with particular emphasis on textual and visual analysis. To this end, the research in this project will build on deep learning methodologies that allow for the integration of multimodal evidence. The research in this project aims to break new ground in multimedia analysis by achieving:
– textual understanding beyond the topical level by statistical modelling of stylistic properties;
– visual understanding of images based on joint analysis of visual sentiment and semantic content;
– modelling the interaction between textual and visual evidence to automatically generate user profiles .
