The following independent report was developed by Expert System using Cogito cognitive technology to analyze similarities and differences between Melania Trump and Michelle Obama’s speeches.
The data used for this document was taken from transcripts of Melania Trump speech (http://www.people.com/article/melania-trump-michelle-obama-similar-convention-speeches July 18 2016) and 2006 Michelle Obama speech (Source: http://edition.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/08/25/michelle.obama.transcript/).
Expert System’s analysis offers only a quantitative analysis of the extracted data; focusing on transcript text, processing both speeches with using Cogito technology, and asking a simple question:
“From a linguistic standpoint, did Melania and Michelle say basically the same things?”
When we consider the complete speech, beyond the controversial passage, the answer is, “No”.
