Gavagai at Almedalen

Gavagai’s technology lends itself well to analyzing opinions, and for that reason we have been sought after at the Almedalen Week. Gavagai’s co-founder Jussi Karlgren is one of the key speakers at the IT Day. Don’t miss the opportunity to listen to how advanced language technology can be applied in the political sphere.

Our analysis of what the word “Almedalen” was associated with in social media revealed that Jimmy Åkesson, leader of the Sweden Democrats, and Russian activist group Pussy Riot, where the most common on July 1st. These results were published in Dagens Opinion.

Using our technology, United Minds has created a graph over the key words in the different party leaders key note addresses. United Minds also created a buzz word bingo game, using the most frequently used key word used by the various parties in their speeches at Almedalen between 1999 and 2012.
