Data Mining for Social Moderation – Event @ Microsoft, Singapore on 6th Feb 2012

The BBC (the British Broadcasting Company), a known media force in Europe, implemented an in-database data mining solution for their public-facing website. The BBC encourages users to post comments and become part of their social media community.

We also discuss cost efficiencies obtained in this project. More and more organizations will need to use enterprise solutions to handle high-volume social networking, learn from it, and eventually take actions that make sense to achieve their goals.
