Social analysis of young Basque-speaking communities in twitter [Recurso electrónico]
In this paper, we take into account both social and linguistic aspects to perform demographic analysis by processing a large amount of tweets in Basque language. The study of demographic characteristics and social relationships are approached by applying machine learning and modern deep-learning Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques, combining social sciences with automatic text processing. More specifically, our main objective is to combine demographic inference and social analysis in order to detect young Basque Twitter users and to identify the communities that arise from their relationships or shared content. This social and demographic analysis will be entirely based on the automatically collected tweets using NLP to convert unstructured textual information into interpretable knowledge.
