Standing at the crossroads between computational linguistics and social science, LexHub is an online community space designed to help a range of audiences understand, execute, and share large-scale language analyses deriving insights about people. Users can read about existing language analysis projects, learn how language analysis is executed, utilize tools to conduct their own language analysis, benefit from expert advice, and connect with other researchers within this field.

The World Well-Being Project (WWBP) is pioneering techniques for measuring individual and community characteristics, psychological well-being, and physical health based on language in social media.
As a collaboration between computer scientists, psychologists, and statisticians, we are shedding new light on the psychosocial processes that affect health and happiness and exploring the potential for our unobtrusive well-being measures to supplement -- and in part replace -- expensive survey methods.
Ultimately, we hope that our insights and analyses will help individuals, organizations, and governments choose actions and policies that are not just in the best economic interest of the people or companies, but which truly improve their well-being.
We are based out of the University of Pennsylvania's Positive Psychology Center. Our work is made possible by the generous support of the Templeton Religion Trust.
