Unstructured Data as a Resource in Consulting

Student: Risa Takenaka, 2019-2020

For my founder’s project, I am creating a consulting service that helps businesses develop solutions to their problems by gathering and analyzing relevant data on Twitter. I plan to do this by diving deep into the technologies of web scraping and natural language processing. Specifically, I will be scraping Twitter to create a dataset of relevant tweets that reflect the experiences of the stakeholders and customers of my client business. I will then perform a sentiment analysis to better understand what these groups are saying about the issue at hand. This information will help inform an actionable plan to mitigate the issue, and I will help my client business implement this solution.
