Understanding cities through Big Social Data
Social Data are produced in large amounts by emerging sources such as sensors, mobile phones, geo-enabled social media, and location-based social networks (LBSNs). In the context of contemporary cities and increasing urbanization, Social Data comprise a precious and untapped source of information about spatial, temporal, and social aspects of the activities, movement, and social connectivity of people. That makes them a powerful source for better city planning and decision-making. Dr. Achilleas Psyllidis (TU Delft) will explain how analyzing big social big data may help us understand human mobility and migration, energy consumption behavior, and social inclusion.
