Volkova Speaks on Social Media Users at GHC
Svitlana Volkova presented "Predicting User Demographics, Emotions and Opinions in Social Networks" at the recent Grace Hopper Conference. GHC is the world's largest conference of women technologists, boasting more than 15,000 attendees. Svitlana, who is also on the GHC Data Science Committee, coauthored the paper about her research analyzing Twitter users and their tweets, investigating the relationships between the expressed opinions and emotions and users' predicted psychodemographic traits.
Dustin Arendt and Meg Pirrung's poster was one of two winning submissions in the IEEE Visualization and Graphics Technical Committee (VGTC) International Data-Visualization Contest. The annual competition recognizes outstanding design in visualization and visual analytics. Themed "Spatio-temporal Visual Analytics," entries were created using data from ACT, an education readiness assessor. PNNL's entry is titled "Local Competition for Students Creates Unused Capacity." This is the second consecutive year that Dustin's entry has been recognized in this competition.
