Apr 17: Neural Networks and Social Media Analytics

The increasing popularity of social media has resulted in growth in the amount of digital data. User-generated content, such as online product reviews, is a valuable source of consumer insight. Such unstructured big data is generated in real-time, is easily accessed, and contains messages consumers want managers to hear. Analysing such data has potential to revolutionise market research and competitive analysis, but how can the messages be extracted? How can the vast amount of data be condensed into insights to help steer businesses’ strategy?

We are very pleased to invite Dr. Shane Wang from Ivey Business School to share a non-proprietary technique that can be applied by anyone with statistical training to help decision makers extract and understand key messages from the vast amount of data their company collects and holds. This will give senior managers and decision makers the ability to condense this information into insights that can help in future strategic planning.
