@GijsSchumacher Re thesis: The project is concerned with the measurement of rhetorical similarity of texts through supervised machine learning. This can be used to assess e.g. the similarity of specific speakers' language to the radical-right.

Very proud of @nicolaiberk who just graduated from our research master with an excellent grade for his thesis. He uses machine learning to develop a great similarity to specific political rhetoric measure. I leave the details to him, [1/3]
