I recently sent a quick one-paragraph e-mail about some security concerns. I intended it to be sensible and precautionary, and thought it made clear that I was still investigating and had found only theoretical problems. I specifically tried to avoid showing fear or crying wolf. But my dad was convinced I’d gone insane. Which almost became a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Is this the sort of misunderstanding that text sentiment analysis could improve the chance of avoiding? I’m choosing this as the place to ask because people could – and I would – also use it for mood tracking.
If it’s doable, what are the hardware requirements? Ideally, what I’d like would be real-time interactive feedback while I was composing in Gmail, even when I was on my Nexus 7 in offline mode (as I was this time). But I’m guessing that even when I’m on my Core i7, it will probably have to happen with GPU acceleration, or in the cloud, or with GPU acceleration in the cloud.
