摘要:Social media has become a popular data source as a surrogate for monitoring and detecting events. Analyzing social media (e.g., tweets) to reveal event information requires sophisticated techniques. Tweets are written in unstructured language and often contain typos, non-standard acronyms, and spam. In addition to the textual content, Twitter data form a heterogeneous information network where users, tweets, and hashtags have mutual relationships. These features pose technical challenges for designing event detection and forecasting methods. In this talk, I will present the design and implementation a fully automated forecasting system for significant societal events using open source data including tweets, blog posts, and news articles. I will describe the system architecture, individual models that leverage specific data sources, and a fusion engine that supports trading off specific evaluation criteria. I will also demonstrate its capability to forecast significant societal happenings.
