Data Gaurdians
Data is a precious resource. Gathering data may be an expensive task, which requires a good understanding of what one has and what is yet missing. Good data understanding is a mandatory requirement to better data analysis. This is where our data guardians come into play. Just like superheroes in a Marvel’s movie, data guardians are charged with understanding a dataset inside and out, and guarding it against misuse. With our data guardians you are never alone. Whenever you are of a need of a dataset, call one of our data guardians and they will walk through the process of gaining access to data and assist in jumpstarting your data analytics.

Using Twitter for near real-time alerts and damage analysis of natural hazards in Israel and its close surrounding

Data Guardian Contact Information - bargenossar@gmail.com

ABOUT THE CHALLENGE - The social network of Twitter is a popular platform for sharing messages (tweets) with numerous subscribers worldwide. Our goal is to analyze damage patterns and affected regions, validate initial damage estimations and inspect how the tweets and additional mined data can assist in management of cascading events during the first hours after a catastrophe occurs.

ABOUT THE DATA - The dataset contains thousands of tweets in English, Hebrew and Arabic. In addition to the tweet itself, we can extract meaningful insights out of coordinates which the tweet was sent from, the tweet's publishing time and sentiment of the content. The Project is done with collaboration with the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies in University of Haifa.

ABOUT ME - I am a B.Sc student in Industrial Engineering and Management, Information systems, Technion. Additionally, I am a psychometry and math private tutor. Besides Hebrew and English, I am a fluent Arabic speaker. My hobbies are basketball, hiking, reading and listening to podcasts.
