“Beating the Stock Market: Measuring the Predictive Power of Twitter Sentiment Analysis” by Alex Isken was considered to be one of the top five submissions and he was awarded a $500 travel grant to present at Carnegie Mellon.

In a previous blog entry we highlighted about Alex’s contributions in hosting a ‘big data and fundamental analysis” workshop to the AIM students. His knowledge of how to mine data from micro-blogs was shared with other students and has led to a special exercise being added to the AIM curriculum.

 

Another Marquette student had a research article accepted by UCIS. We would also like to congratulate Alex Mueller for his “Python Programming in Web Vulnerability Assessments” article.
