Automatically profiling the author of an anonymous text
In the authorship profiling problem, we are given a text of unknown authorship, and wish to know as much as possible about the unknown author (demographics, personality, cultural background, etc.), just by analyzing the given text. We exploit the sociolinguistic observation that different groups of people speaking or writing in a particular genre and in a particular language use that language differently. The particular profile dimensions we consider here are author gender , age, native language and personality.
