Big Social Data - Interdisciplinary Analytics

Real Estate & Planning will be hosting an interdisciplinary Big Social Data workshop. The purpose of this day-long workshop is to bring together researchers who work with big social media data in different areas of Computational and Social Sciences including Politics, Economics, International Relations and Computational Linguistics to present and discuss the latest research and developments.

The amount of data available is increasing at a phenomenal rate, presenting both opportunities and challenges for research. Social media platforms which capture and quantify everyday life constitute a particularly interesting segment of big data. Mining and analysing this "big social data" allows us to investigate a number of important questions in Social Sciences. Big social data also present a huge methodological challenge - the collection and processing necessary for analysis.
