Professor Bela Stantic, Head of School of Information and Communication Technology, reveals the secrets behind his accurate predictions of the 2016 US Federal election, Brexit and the recent 2019 Australian Federal election. Predicting elections are a good testbed for Professor Stantic as the outcome and accuracy of his methods can be confirmed. Some of the methods and algorithms have been developed as part of externally funded projects such as assessing sentiments in the tourism industry or predicting environmental changes.
This keynote speech will demonstrate the power of big data analytics through elaborating on the diverse areas of existing projects in the “Big Data and Smart Analytics Lab”. Professor Stantic will also explain how you and your business can benefit from extracting valuable information hidden within publicly available data!
