Joint Sessions at PAW and TAW
Social Media Analysis for Market Prediction
In this session you will learn how Professor Bollen's team has analyzed
large – scale Twitter data to yield accurate measurements of the public's mood state which in turn have been shown to contain predictive information with regards to the Dow Jones Industrial Average. In addition you will learn how the team performed an analysis of longitudinal changes in individual user sentiment over hundreds of thousands of Twitter users to study the effects of social networking relations to evolving user mood states.
