Dr. Hipp presents recent work at the SoCal Social Analytics Workshop

A wealth of digital information is generated daily through social networks, e.g., Twitter. A number of domains, including public health, national security, public safety, and public policy, can benefit greatly from the awareness of trends and situations as they become observable in social media data.
