WORKSHOP-BIG DATA ANALYTICSIsraeli Social Protest Osher Arbib Winter 2012-2013 Tel-Aviv University
General Review • In summer of 2011 began the Israeli Social Protest, which is the largest protest movement in Israel's history. • One of the main factors in the development of the protest is the ease with information transition on the Internet – in a veteran format as e-mails and forums, and social networks Facebook and Twitter.
Project Background • Over a period of about a year and a half were collected e-mails by the protests - some personal emails and most emails sent to distribution lists. • The project goal is to build an efficient model for data analysis, and deduce information that will be useful for analyzing social science aspects of protest
Project Purposes • The analysis of the given information will be on two levels – • Analyzethe structured information (an analysis by subjects, timeline, traffic volume, etc.) • Understanding the un-structured information (i.e.- text content understanding) • Perhaps that will be produced suitable model for analyzing information sources real – time, which helps with future events.
Limitations • The content analysis is limited: • As language limitations, i.e.- even the recognition of verb conjugations and nouns in Hebrew is complicated. • Limited tools allow entry-level content analysis- identification at most expressions of the two - three words.
