BRUSSELS (March 16, 2016): Laurentiu Vasiliu, CEO of Peracton Ltd, is a guest speaker at the EurActiv Institute’s workshop focusing on Big Data Mining within social media.
Big Data and social media have recently become hot topics for policy makers as public opinion trends grow more and more important within our 21st century hyper connected world. Not only has the real-time analysis of this primary source of information become key to decision makers from finance to politics, but it is clear that the potential of social media has yet to be fully exploited and the structured as well as unstructured Big Data harnessed in a comprehensible way. This is completed by the fact that major regulatory aspects are at stake as far as the European Commission and its Digital Single Market strategy are concerned.
Peracton, as a partner of the SSIX European Project, will attend the workshop to present the Sentiment Analysis in SSIX approach, focusing on the applications in finance but also in politics and for policy makers, as public opinion matters more and more for future decisions in these fields.
