Part 1 (Aniruddha): Introduction to Twitter related problems, previous work done in this area such as earthquake detection and then to our mathematical model of how tweets are produced. A more formal mathematical model is proposed which leads to a graph-regularized optimization problem. Finally, some new mathematical issues that arise from our initial work will be talked about.
Part 2 (Junming): The case study on roadkill and synthetic data. Data collection from twitter: natural language processing on tweet and how it can be used for our particular problem, Twitter API and collecting tweets automatically. Results and some future questions.
