Comparative Perspectives and Continuities 30 May - 1 June 2014 | Regent's University London
Next week at Regent’s University Turkish Migration Conference (TMC2014,
London), Elian Carsenat will present breakthrough data mining technology
to apply onomastics (the recognition of personal names) to the
discovery of new migration patterns.
As states struggle to provide timely and accurate data to
international organizations (such as the OECD, IOM, United Nations High
Commissioner for Refugees UNHCR, …), these organizations can turn to the
Big Data to identify and monitor new trends. What can Twitter,
LinkedIn, Google, Facebook, D&B, Thomson WoS … tell us about the
changing migration patterns of highly educated professionals,
entrepreneurs? We’ll present how applied onomastics and the Big Data can
be a game changer in migration studies, with vast implications on
how countries or even regions can engage their Diaspora (to attract FDI,
remittances, to build networks of expertise, …)
We look forward to see you at Regent’s University Turkish Migration Conference (TMC2014, London). Full program here.
