The seminar considers how the novel social web environments such as blogs, social networking sites, folksonomies can be analyzed and simulated. On the first session there is an introduction to the area and the preliminary topics of group work assignments. Students form small groups (2-4 persons).
Methods that may be utilized in the seminar work include text mining, network models, link analysis, diffusion and propagation analysis, clustering and graph visualisation. An earlier course on Information Networks organized by Dr. Gemma Garriga provides a number of links to potentially useful resources.
It is recommended that the data used in the course includes a collection of blog articles related to a seminar course organized at Helsinki School of Economics by Prof. Mika Pantzar. The data is in Finnish and therefore tools such as Snowball, Morfessor or some morphological analyser should be used.
The course will be graded as accepted / failed. Requirements for passing the course:
