From the war in Libya to the elections in Nigeria, speculation abounds about the power of new media for social change – spawning a cottage industry of “expert” analysis of the data from social networks, which then influences government policy and public perceptions.
This Blogs & Bullets meeting will bring together the companies and experts who sift through the data with activists that create it and policy-makers who use it. We will look at the cutting-edge of research technologies and predictive analytics in an effort to expand our ability to harness these new platforms for conflict management and peacebuilding.
