Mining Social Media: Tracking Content and Predicting Behavior

Computational predictability: the algorithmic perspective on human behavior. A kind of Ellerdale project.

“The advent of social media has established a symbiotic relationship between social media and online news. This relationship can be leveraged for tracking news content, and predicting behavior with tangible real-world applications, e.g., online reputation management, ad pricing, news ranking, and media analysis. In this thesis, we focus on tracking news content in social media, and predicting user behavior.”
