Title: Uncertainty of Identity: Analysis and Visualization of Social Media data
This talk will present some of the work I have been doing at UCL as part of an ESPRC funded project ‘Uncertainty of Identity’. The fission of different lifestyles and advent of new media and ubiquitous computing are embedding technology ever deeper into human identity. There has been a tremendous rise in the growth of online social networks all over the world in recent times. These social networks produce large amount of data every day, and analysis of these data can give us an insight into the online behavior of individuals. While discussing the different visualization techniques employed, this talk will present the analysis performed on the Twitter data to identify the aspects of cultural and ethnic identity.
