With the election now over, the yard signs and television advertisements can disappear and none too soon. However, Expert System did a linguistic and semantic analysis of the third and final presidential debate between President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney, and have released the highlights. It is interesting to see semantic technology used in such a way.

Melodika brought this news to our attention in their article, “US Presidential Debate: Analysis Shows a Shift in Obama’s “Will” and Romney’s “Can” from the Second.” Semantic analysis distinguishes the most important words and concepts being conveyed in text. This is determined by a sophisticated algorithm and not by frequency.

Check out the article and learn about the results of  your candidate.
