Propagating Disaster Warnings on Social and Digital Media
A nexus of techniques including information extraction techniques, including a bag of words model, web and social media search and time series analysis, are discussed that may reveal the potential of social media and social networks. Social aspects of data privacy are discussed to ensuring that the data collected, filtered, and then used. This work is the effort of Trinity College Dublin and other universities.
