In fall of 2013, I (Steve Kimbrough) offered a “Text Analytics Clinic” at the University of Pennsylvania. I encouraged students to find interesting projects for which text analytics would be helpful tools. I was delighted with what they came up with. For example, Robert Dearborn and Dasha Zmachynskaya looked at speeches in the Congressional Record, correlated them with Wikipedia posts on the individuals involved and their publicly known issues with honesty and integrity. They found quite fascinating, positive associations. See their report summarized and with comments here.
