Social data+big data=real time decision making?

Posted under: From the Blog 12th of March, 2013

So if you combine real time social data with big data, does that produce real time decision making?

Interesting idea about mining real time social data in big data style..

A team at Melbourne’s Monash University has developed the technology to provide more up-to-date information to event managers.

The demonstrator can scan Twitter and Facebook entries by the public at events to identify if everything is safe in the field.

“If something happens before the staff on the ground can take action, managers can take preventive actions to be proactive rather than reactive,” says Frada Burstein, who is based at the faculty of information technology.

Sort of like “Warmest 100″, except in real time.
