UEM JAIPUR ACM STUDENT CHAPTER is organizing a Distinguished Speaker Program by Prof. Dr. Animesh Mukherjee, Associate Professor, Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur at the UEM Jaipur premises on 5th August, 2019 on the topic “Language of social media: from hashtags to question topics”.
Dr. Animesh Mukherjee is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. Prior to this, he worked as an Assistant Professor in the same Department for four and a half years. Immediately before that he was a post-doctoral researcher in the Complex Systems Lagrange Lab, ISI Foundation, Italy. He received his PhD from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur with a thesis on “self-organization of human speech sound inventories”. His main research interests are in applying complex system approaches (mainly complex networks and agent-based simulations) to different problems in Computer Science.
In this talk I shall outline a summary of our four years long initiative studying the popularity dynamics of various human language-like entities over the social media. Some of the topics that I plan to cover are (a) how hashtags in Twitter form compounds like natural language words (e.g., milk+man=milkman) that become way more popular then the individual constituent hashtags [CSCW 2016, Honorable Mention], (b) how conversational hashtags (aka idioms) like #4thingsbeforebreakup, #threethingsIlike etc. spread and become popular in Twitter [ICWSM 2015] (c) how question topics in community QA forums like Quora [ICWSM 2015] become popular over time (d) how borrowed words can be automatically extracted from Hindi-English code-mixed tweets.
