From Social Media to Knowledge

Description: 

It is one thing to collect tons of tweets; it is another to turn them into knowledge. We develop machine learning models for this purpose. For example, our Socioscope model can robustly estimate spatio-temporal distributions of any target phenomenon using inhomogeneous Poisson point process (ECML-PKDD 2012 Best Paper).
