Quantitative Modelling & Forecasting Methods in Social Media and Energy

Friday 18th May, 2012 in Business / Researchers / Scottish Doctoral Colloquium
Featuring: Jooyoung Jeon

How does a researcher choose a quantitative model that may be of some real value? This talk will describe how to accommodate real world questions in quantitative modelling in two fast-growing areas: social media and energy. The potential applicability and merits in the two areas are explored with specific examples: (1) box office revenue forecasting with Twitter data streams, (2) probabilistic forecasting for wind power. A framework for evaluating quantitative models is presented.
