Presentations for XCS group

Recently, Michelle and Tristan had the opportunity to present our work tying together social media, the weather and climate change to the XCS group here in the University. It was a great chance to connect with other researchers and share their work with new audiences.

Michelle presented her work looking at the use of Twitter data to ‘nowcast’, that is looking at how tweets can be used to augment traditional sensors to measure the impacts of storms, floods and other weather events.

Tristan shared his work studying how people share information about climate change on Twitter, in particular how polarisation in interactions extends to media choices.
