AI-Powered Extraction of Knowledge from Social Media

Please join the Goergen Institute for Data Science for AI-Powered Extraction of Knowledge from Social Media, a research seminar with Yiannis Kompatsiaris, Research Director at the Information Technologies Institute (ITI) at the Centre for Research & Technology Hellas (CERTH).

Abstract: Social media has transformed the Web into an interactive sharing platform where users upload data and media, comment on, and share this content within their social circles. The large-scale availability of user-generated content in social media platforms has opened up new possibilities for studying and understanding real-world phenomena, trends and events. The objective of this talk is to provide an overview of knowledge extraction techniques from social media, which offers a unique opportunity to provide useful insights. It will include key challenges and issues, data collection, analysis and visualization components, applications, results and demonstrations from various areas, ranging from news and misinformation-fighting to environmental and security ones.
