Deep Learning of Charisma
Thursday 6 December 2018 (12h00 - 13h00) - Extranef - 126
I'll introduce the concept of charisma from the field of leadership studies, where it has been correlated with success in leadership and politics. I'll go to show that automatic classification of charisma can be cast as a speech or text classification problem with a solution in the recent advances in deep learning. Essentially, an encoder-based model is capable of inferring the methods of symbolic communication that carry charismatic traits. Further, I'll show that an attention mechanism can shed light on which aspects of the input text lead to which classifications.
