Welcome to the Reading General Election Blog, created as part of blogs.reading.ac.uk.
We are a set of staff at the university with an interest in both big datasets and social media data:
- Giuseppe Di Fatta, Systems Engineering.
- Danica Vukadinovic Greetham, Maths.
- Sylvia Jaworska, Linguistics.
- Sarah Jewell, Economics.
- Anupam Nanda, Real Estate and Planning.
- James Reade, Economics.
Together we’ve formed the University of Reading Big Social Data Research Group.
We will begin to blog based on the election using social media data, but in the interim we will begin presenting data-informed comment based on our own research on here – stay tuned…
