Students, researchers and web scientists came together for a hackathon-sytle meet-up hosted by Mark Musen and the team at Stanford.
Post-grad researchers Ramine Tinati, Chris Phethean and Ian Brown from Southampton introduced the day with presentations of their research interests including:
- Social Media effectiveness for Charities,
- Message propgation in Social Networks and
- Observation – how observatories are different
the session progressed into a data hack together kicked off by Vinay Goel from our partners at the Internet Archive to look at ways in which complex data sets can be wrangled, analysed and shared.
