EU Project CUTLER started with a Kick-off meeting at Thessaloniki

[go to overview]

The recently granted EU project CUTLER aims to shift the existing paradigm of policy making in coastal areas, which is largely based on intuition, towards an evidence-driven approach enabled by big data. In the second week of January 2018, the kick-off meeting brought together the 15 international project partners in Thessaloniki/Greece. WeST was represented by Dr. Chandan Kumar and Jun Sun, where they presented our focus on trend detection, opinion mining from crowdsourcing/social media platforms, and provide appropriate visualisations and predictive analytics to assess the social consequences of policy implementation.
