B204 - Online & Social Media Analysis: Research for Government Customers

3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Allison Ounanian, Lead Information Analyst, MITRE Corp
Stacey Galik, Senior Information Analyst, MITRE Corp.

Two MITRE information analysts discuss the use of online and social media analysis tools to generate situation awareness for deliverables provided to government customers. Working within a team of analysts, scientists, developers, and modelers, the information analysts use commercially available tools (both free and for-fee) to contribute to the generation of various case studies which act as a proof-of-concept to demonstrate how these technologies can provide support to government missions. To demonstrate this work, presenters describe their use of an industry tool, generation of search queries in the tool, and analysis of query results using the tool’s various analytic and visualization capabilities, including geolocation of social media messages, trending topics, and user demographics. They talk about the value and limitations of online and social media tools and data as well as other tools used, including advanced research analytic capabilities under development at MITRE.
