The Data Science Institute invites you to their next Advanced Data Analytics Seminar taking place on 8th March 2017 . Prof Nello Cristianini from the University of Bristol will present 'Large Scale Analysis of Media Content (Twitter, News and Historical Newspapers)'. Please note that this seminar will be held in the Atlas Rooms in the Kilburn Building as opposed to the usual venue.

Nello will present recent work in the area of media content analysis, its big-data origins, and its applications to social science and humanities. In particular he will present three projects: an analysis of twitter content; an analysis of gender bias in modern news; and an analysis of historical trends in 150 years of British and American newspapers. This is joint work performed as part of the ERC Advanced grant ThinkBIG.
