Enabling largely automated social media analytics

In this talk we will report on our recent advances in automating the analysis of social media data. We first will review our recent work on a platform for analysing social media data in terms of topics discussed, communities and their influencers. This platform has been successfully used in a number of practical use case. When using the platform we identified the creation of domain-specific taxonomies as the main bottleneck in the analysis process.

To tackle this issue we developed a novel method for taxonomy induction from domain-specific document corpora. In the second part of the talk we will discuss this method and some of the novel ideas that enabled us to produce high quality domain-specific taxonomies on the fly.
