Project Description

The Laboratory for Social Machines based at the Media Lab seeks students with experience in software development, natural language processing, and social network analysis to work on a new project aimed at social media analytics. The project seeks to develop a taxonomy of social media influencers, and automated methods for classifying social media accounts according to that taxonomy. Interest in current events, pop culture and social media is helpful but not required. UROPs for pay or credit available. If interested please send your resume to Brandon Roy at bcroy@media.mit.edu.
