Prashant Khare (Alumni)Research Associate
I am a PhD student at KMi, Open University working under the supervision of Dr. Harith Alani and Dr. Miriam Fernandez. My interests are around mining and understanding what the users talk about over the social media in the context of their interests, situations, and feedback etc. The focus is on building up tools utilising the various Information Retrieval techniques enveloped by NLP and Machine Learning techniques, and also exploring the scope of leveraging the semantic web in order to generate knowledge out of a data which is voluminous and unstructured in nature.
Keys: data science, social media analysis, information retrieval, machine learning, behaviour analysis
