Honors project on mood detection in music lyrics

Team leader Alissa Powers, under the supervision of Prof. Lisa Pearl and my direction, is working on aspects of the project related to an innovative game-with-a-purpose (GWAP) for language and music classification by exploiting the wisdom of the crowd phenomenon. These aspects include carrying out research on the GWAP, designing the game and the computational infrastructure, programming the software tool, providing user feedback on early implementations and promoting the GWAP to potential GWAP players. Alissa’s work is also part of her Honors project.
