Big Social Data with COSMOS

We are delighted to welcome Dr Pete Burnap from the university of Cardiff to talk about COSMOS their on-line social media observatory.

The aim of COSMOS is to establish a coordinated interdisciplinary UK response to “Big Social Data”. COSMOS is developing a research programme to address next-generation research questions that focus upon the challenges posed by big social data to government, digital economy, security & privacy, and civil society, that will form an evidence base to lead policy development and practice. This empirical programme is complemented by a focus on the ethical impact dimensions of big social data and the development of new methodological tools and technical/data solutions for UK academia. In this webinar the COSMOS team will provide an overview of their computational social science toolkit, which is designed for use by technical and non-technical researchers and policy makers with an interest in using big social data to pose questions of social scientific interest.
