The massive amount of data on social networks (e.g., Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, Instagram, Web forums) provides an exceptional opportunity for leveraging citizen sensing (user expressed observations and opinions) for collective intelligence (deeper insights that drive decisions and actions based on social data) in numerous domains – retailing including branding and marketing, financial markets, entertainment and sports, disaster coordination, social movements, healthcare and epidemiology, etc. However, social data is extremely rich, providing opportunity to understand them from many dimensions such as spatio-temporal-thematic, people-content-network, and sentiment-emotion-intention. It takes a rich variety of semantic techniques including knowledge graphs or ontology enhanced or empowered text mining, natural language processing, and machine learning (including deep learning). Twitris is an embodiment of all these for real-time and highly scalable technology used both in scientific research and in commercial applications.
