The General Online Research Conference is annually organized by the German Society for Online Research in cooperation with a local partner. In 2017 the GOR conference will take place in Berlin, Germany, with the HTW Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin/University of Applied Sciences being the local organizer.
On behalf of the RapidMiner Research Team, Edwin Yaqub, Phd and I went to GOR to present our work about Automated Mechanisms to Discover and Integrate Data from Web-based Tabular Collections, which is part of our results from the results of our DS4DM research project (http://ds4dm.de/en/). Our poster explains the concept of extending the value of your data by automatically finding and adding additional attributes (see attached PDF of the poster).
The conference is a great mix of researchers from very different fields. There is a bunch data scientist like us, that show the value of analytics and how to use big data techniques for applied social science. Besides that there are many people from market research and political science, who analyse for example how social media influenced the latest election and how to build better prediction models for next polls.
