                                        Understanding and Generating Evaluative Text




Evaluative texts like customer reviews of different products and services contain useful information for both individuals and corporate managers. Under the supervision of Dr. Giuseppe Carenini, this group builds tool that not only extracts useful information from the review content, but also generates novel text to support the information goal of the user.
