Some weeks ago I got a really big surprise: Our paper “No Outstanding Surprises when Using Social Media as Source for Weak Signals?” at the ICDS IARIA conference 2015 got the conference award as a best paper
Today another sneak preview: Markus Lassnig will present a short paper about the surprise potential of weak signals detection (today, again in Portugal).
