Taught by Dr. Kang Pyo Lee.
This unique course will introduce the basic elements in big data based social media analytics using Python. In the morning sessions, the attendees will learn how to view, utilize, analyze social media data in terms of finding answers to a research question. In the afternoon hands-on sessions, the attendees will be able to find an opportunity of collecting, processing, and analyzing real Twitter data focusing on a specific target of interest. Prior experience with Python is recommended, but not required. Please note that social network analysis will not be covered significantly in this course, because it will be further covered by other course on Friday entitled "Network Analysis Using R".
