SIG project related. Sentiment analysis of the effect of the social media on the equity market. We are interested in using the Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) to analyses the effect of infomation on social media, tentatively reddit and twitter, on the marcro market, such as major indices. Other minor but interesting equity which historically correlates with social media may also be considered, such as some major cryptocurrencies.There is also work on Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) to generate syncthetic data to enhance the training data (https://dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/3349341.3349432). We may need to decide to what extent the project is doable.
