Living analytics methods for the web observatory

Ernesto Diaz-Aviles
2013 Proceedings of the 22nd International Conference on World Wide Web - WWW '13 Companion  
We center the discussion on two areas: (i) Recommender Systems for Big Fast Data and (ii) Collective Intelligence, both key components towards an analytics toolbox for our Web Observatory.  ...  In particular, we present our approach based on Living Analytics methods, whose main goal is to capture people interactions in real-time and to analyze multidimensional relationships, metadata, and other  ...  The methods presented in this paper constitute a set of tools to understand and analyze the social web following a Living Analytics approach towards our Web Observatory at the L3S Research Center.  ...
