Project Deep Dive: Justin Chun-ting Ho

24th January 10:30 AM 12:00 PM GMT

While recent years witnessed an increasing use of computational text analysis in communications, the computational analysis of visual content remained a challenging task. Recent advancement in multi-modal embeddings offers promising solutions to conduct automated content analysis on images as well texts. Using an annotated dataset of green influencer posts on Instagram, this project presents and compares various inductive and deductive approaches to use pre-trained multi-modal embeddings for extracting theoretically relevant topics and frames from multi-modal content.
