:A Conceptual Framework to Analyze Socio-Political Phenomena from Large-Scale Data SourcesAbstract:
Social media is a very rich platform for highlighting human behaviour in political debates, elections, referendums, and other group decision-making activities. By its nature, social networks are complex structures, and advanced methodologies are required to understand human behaviour. The focus of my Ph.D. research is the definition of a broad interpretation framework and a set of models for studying the impact of social media on political and social issues, through data science techniques. My experimental study is the long-running phenomenon of the Brexit referendum.
