CIS 720 Seminar – A Talk on Creating a Social Crisis Response System & Tableau Analysis by Dr. Wiebke Reile

Please join us at the CIS 720 seminar from 4:30-5:30pm on Monday, 4/19, for Dr. Wiebke Reile’s talk on “Creating a Social Crisis Response System & Tableau Analysis”.

Topic: Creating a Social Crisis Response System & Tableau Analysis

In 2020, many brands experienced backlash on social media for being inconsiderate of current events and content posted.  This talk explores how to develop a social crisis alert system using Boolean logic and quantitative analysis in Tableau, and how I have applied these concepts for my own academic research.
