In this seminar, students will study various aspects of Social Network Analysis. In the first phase, each student will present one aspect of a general overview. In the second phase, students will form small groups and implement their own idea (or pcik one from a selection of ideas). Students will put their proposals into practice using real world social network data in the form of corporate emails. Therefore, we will provide a pre-processed Version of the Enron corpus. It is encouraged to incorporate related work from research on Social Network Analysis and Text Mining and reproduce findings using our corpus.
Results from these projects can be very interesting for journalists or auditors, who have to dig through huge datasets to find interesting facts or uncover inherent structures manually.
A list of project ideas will be presented in our introduction meeting (see schedule).
