Xmas Special

  • Dec 14, 2015 · 6:15 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Making up for lost time, we have an extra special event for you this time. Our Xmas Special features talks from three key figures in the text analytics community:

(1) Miles Osborne (Senior Research Scientist at Bloomberg) Wall Street meets the Biebs: Algorithmic Discovery of Important News in Twitter

(2) Gabriella Kazai (Head of Data Science at Lumi): Lumi: A recommender system for crowd-curated content

(3) Miguel Martinez-Alvarez (Head of Research at Signal): Signal: Analysing and understanding the world’s news

Doors will open at 18:15, and talks will start promptly at 19:00. Bloomberg are very kindly hosting the event in their offices at 39-45 Finsbury Square in Moorgate. Space is limited, so reserve your spot now.

More details to follow. This is bound to be popular, so please only RSVP yes if you can definitely come!

    Fantastic event, I enjoyed it a lot. Thanks to all the organisers and the other speakers. For those of you interested, here you have the link for the 1 Million signal media dataset and the workshop we will be running as part of ECIR:

    Hi Tony, I was just wondering whether there is any chance of any spaces becoming freed up for this evening. I would really like to come if possible.

      Hi Hugh - yes, there is usually a flurry of cancellations on the day, so keep an eye on the waitlist. For this particular one Bloomberg need full names, so we can't add any +1's this time I'm afraid!

      Enjoyed all the talks, but particularly the Bloomberg one. I have read a research paper detailing a simple correlation between twitter data and share indexes and would like to code an end-to-end working version (just for fun). I am able to do the coding to retrieve the stats from the twitter API's, place stock market trades etc, but if someone can help me with the mathematical aspect (detailed in the paper) and wants to be involved then please contact me to work together. The mentioned paper can be found here: https://www.ecb.europa...­
