Description of my final project

Project Name: Predicting Respondent Profiles from Survey Data

Our group is applying data science methods to quantitative and qualitative survey data collected by a conference-producing company. The company wants to automate the extraction of actionable information to create profiles of survey respondents. The profiles will assist with conference design and marketing. We’re using clustering and Natural Language Processing techniques to produce models that will help the existing staff hone their ability to develop useful personas so the firm can better target their desired market. The end product will be reusable with other surveys with minor changes.
