Wednesday, February 20, 12:00 - 2:00, Butler Library 181B
Can the words people write in emails, on social networking sites, and on paper have an impact on their behavior? Do written messages provide insight into the goals and intentions of the people who wrote them? These questions, and others like them, will be answered in a presentation about the research and principles of written and verbal human interaction. In this presentation by Darrin Griffin PhD. student and researcher in the Communication Science Deception Research Lab at UB, you will also be introduced to the art of statement analysis (used by law enforcement to guide interviewing and detection of deception) and a demonstration of a computer program that will illustrate how measuring written language (such as pronoun usage) can reveal specific emotions or the presence of deception.
