Social Media Stream Analysis
Contact: Andreas Weiler
More and more dynamic data sources of all types are producing a continuous increasing amount of real-time data. As we don't want to loose a lot of time between the data creation and our results, we need to find a way to process and analyze the data in a very short period of time. For example, the users of the microblogging service "Twitter" produce over 100.000 new updates (tweets) per minute. As a result, we have to discover how and to what extent we can use databases for dealing with this vast number of data in an on-line fashion.
In this context we offer practical as well as conceptional projects for bachelor and master students (in german and english). See http://dbis.uni-konstanz.de/research/social-media-stream-analysis/
