Event Details

Cosponsored with the Master of Science in Foreign Service program.

Some say “big data” is a usable, practical tool to help foreign policy makers, implementers and analysts increase their understanding of global issues. For example, computerized analysis of massive amounts of world press reporting yielded an innovative map of Ukraine’s protest violence useful to any individual grappling with the present and anticipating the future of that region. Can similar analysis of the thoughts, discussions, and debates expressed in public social conversation provide meaningful insights for diplomats?

Speakers:

  • The State of Big Data: Kalev Leetaru, Yahoo! Fellow

  • The Social Media Landscape: Will Mayo, GNIP

  • Big Data, but Not for Superman: Engaging and Empowering Grass Roots Peacebuilders: Noel Dickover, US Institute of Peace

  • Big Data to Visualize, Analyze, and Forecast Global Issues: Kalev Leetaru

Registration with Continental Breakfast begins at 8:30 am.

Program begins at 9:00 am.
