We'll be presenting an introduction to emoji data science at the first ever Emojicon in San Francisco! "Despite the profusion of emojis in digital life, little research has been done that leverages emojis to understand popular sentiment. We believe that emoji data science, a largely unexplored field, might be a powerful new methodology for both the computational social sciences as well as fast data journalism."
"What can emojis tell you about celebrities and their fans? Data scientist Hamdan Azhar, founder of emoji analytics company PRISMOJI, pondered this age-old question in the wake of some fresh Taylor Swift and Kanye West drama."
At Prismoji, we believe that emojis - as a “new type of language” - are a major key for understanding popular sentiment in a digital age.
