2. Can we access information not limited by space and time?

Research Question

Do changes in population sentiment measured in social media data after emotional events also show up before those events? Can we detect presentiments in collective consciousness?

Project Summary

Using Twitter data, we are studying if sentiment measures identified after the Las Vegas shooting of October 1, 2017 has presentiment indicators before the shooting. If such indications are found, then social media data may be useful for creating a "precrime" service.
