Big Data and UGC Verification in Malaysia



It’s hot and sticky outside, but cool and refreshing inside. I am in Putrajaya, Malaysia, where I just finished my talk on “Big Data in Media and its Implications for Journalism”. It’s part of the EU-SEA Big Data Summit 2016, organised by the EC co-funded project Connect2SEA.  On 4 May, and in addition to the conference participation on 5-6 May, I gave a workshop presentation about UGC verification. All went well. And I am too tired and exhausted now to write more about it. If you want to find out more and get some impressions of the past few days, see some of my Tweets on Twitter to get an idea of what I have been up to.
