Extracting and Predicting Events from Online Communication and Hybrid Datasets
EPOCH will measure the effects on statistical indicators of events being reported in the news and social media. Innovatively, it will use the measured effects of now past events to predict the future changes expected due to future events detected in the public dialogue. Through the EPOCH dashboard, organizations can identify and thus better prepare for these changes, adapting their communications, marketing and resources accordingly. This will be demonstrated in the domains of purchase price forecasting and public relations.
MODUL Technology ́s main role in the project is to provide components for data collection from various sources, apply event detection with temporal annotation and statistical modelling of correlations between historical data and events to support innovative predictive analytics.
