Dr. Kramer joined the board of technical advisors of data.world, which is a Public Benefit Corporation focused on building the most meaningful, abundant, and collaborative data resource in the world.
Dr. Kramer presented his research on more than 120 M tweets related to the 2016 U.S. presidential elections in a talk entitled “Finding Key Influencers and Viral Topics in Twitter Networks Related to ISIS, Brexit, and the 2016 Elections.”
Dr. Kramer presented a talk “Finding Emerging Topics Using Chaos and Community Detection in Social Media Graphs” in a joint meetup of Austin Data Geeks and Austin Graph.
A sample of 2.5M tweets mentioning “Ebola” was collected during November 5–12, 2014. The titles of the 6227 web pages referenced by the tweets were used to cluster the web pages into roughly 100 topics. Paragon Science’s patented dynamic anomaly detection software identified the top five most-anomalous topics. This research demonstrates how these techniques allow us to focus attention quickly on viral, emerging topics. A video showing an animation of those anomalous topics and the key related web pages for every hour of that week in November 2014 is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEQ02hv4Xjw.
Paragon Science has been granted U.S. Patent #8738652 (“Systems and Methods for Dynamic Anomaly Detection”), issued on May 27, 2014.
Dr. Steve Kramer gave a joint presentation, “Got Chaos? Extracting Critical Business Intelligence from Email Using Advanced NLP and Dynamic Graph Analysis,” with Matthew Russell, CTO of Digital Reasoning, at Data Day Texas 2014.
Paragon Science has collaborated with WCG on their MDigitalLife initiative to identify key Twitter influencers and viral topics in their curated community of clinical oncologists.
Paragon Science’s paper entitled “Anomaly detection in extremist web forums using a dynamical systems approach” for the Challenge Project has been accepted for presentation and publication at the ACM SIGKDD Workshop on Intelligence and Security Informatics in Washington, DC, in July 2010.
