On Thursday 28th November 2013, there will be the 2nd Workshop on Big Data and Social Media, at ICMS Edinburgh.
The event will bring together people in commerce, government and academia, covering technical issues (data, collection, algorithms, high performance computing) and implications for marketing, healthcare, social sciences and the study of human interaction (questions of interest, limitations, pitfalls). The main themes are:
- Increasing our understanding of human behaviour by analysing large scale, heterogeneous data sets from online social media.
- Looking at opportunities and challenges when this information is used in business, government and healthcare.
The workshop is funded by the Centre for Numerical Algorithms and Intelligent Software (NAIS). The workshop Twitter hashtag is #edbdsoc
