The goal of this project is to develop a prototype web application, which will allow the capture and evaluation (determining sentiment) thousands of web texts in business, economic and political content in the Slovenian language with a variety of online sources. We will create a comprehensive database, which will store the data and metadata about the content covered online texts. On the basis of web texts we will gain labeled corpus, which will be available to the wider scientific community, and will serve for further research. The project is very relevant and useful primarily in economic terms, but will also contributed to the development of language resources for the Slovenian language, which gives it added value.

The project is partly funded by the European Union through the European Social Fund. The project is implemented under the Operational Programme for Human Resources Development for the period 2007-2013, Priority axis 1 "Promoting entrepreneurship and adaptability" 1.3. "Scholarship Scheme", within the approved operations "A creative path to practical knowledge."
