Keynote presentation on August 30th, 2013
James Fowler, Professor of Medical Genetics and Political Science at the
University of California, San Diego
Big Data and Big Experiments with Millions of People

James Fowler will discuss several observational and experimental studies
we have been doing using Twitter and Facebook data. This work uses new
methods to (1) get voters to the polls on a massive scale, (2) predict
which pieces of information will go viral, (3) turn "likes" into a
measure of political ideology, (4) test a 40 year old theory on the
strength of weak ties using employment data, and (5) measure the
transmission of emotion online using rainfall.
