Description:

Social Web
COSMIC LogoCloud-Oriented Social Media Inference And Counteraction (COSMIC)
Principal Investigator: V. Subrahmanian and Jim Hendler
Co Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Description: COSMIC will combine novel algorithms from sentiment analysis, probabilistic temporal learning of diffusion of messages/opinion in social networks, forecasting and prediction of the reach of messages in social media, and game-theoretic methods to counteract diffusion of messages, into a highly modular, loosely-coupled framework and software platform to address the objectives of DARPA’s Social Media in Strategic Communication (SMISC) Program.
