My name is Maxwell Chase Pisano. I’m a senior studying electrical engineering at Union College in the Class of 2020. I’ve always have had a passion for economics and finance and how we can use machine learning to predict the unpredictable which is why my project is looking at Twitter as predictor of S&P 500 volatility. I have investigated the fields of natural language processing (NLP), machine learning, parallel computing, speech recognition and processing, sentiment analysis, big data analytics, and financial analysis to determine if there is a correlation between tweets and market volatility.
