Reddit is a social network and has been in existence for 15 years. In contrast to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, Reddit is organized into communities (subreddits). Recently, it has gained considerable popularity.
Reddit allows downloading data with a liberal license and offers a public API. The data can be easily parsed with Python. This is a big difference from other social networks.
The webinar will show how to acquire the data and analyze it with unsupervised methods (topic models). Afterward, we will calculate timelines and dive into trend prediction.
We are looking for passionate people willing to cultivate and inspire the next generation of leaders in tech, business, and data science. If you are one of them get in touch with us!
