The Power of Meta-Networks for Rapid Ethnographic Assessment

Kathleen Carley, School of Computer Science - Carnegie Mellon University
Meta-Networks are high dimensional interlinked multi-mode and multi-link networks that can vary by time and space. They can be rapidly extracted from media data such as on-line news and social media. When this is done, the resultant analysis provides key insight into the evolving cultures and provides a rapid ehtnographic assessment. Key advances in in big data analytics and visualization, coupled with text-analytics make such analysis possible. This process is described and results shown for two cases - the Benghazi Consulate Attack and the current state of Myanmar.
