The Oxford Internet Institute is excited to welcome Marc Smith for the talk 'Distilling Digital Traces and Capturing Crowds with NodeXL'.

In this talk, Marc will demonstrate how NodeXL has been used to capture and identify online crowds of conversations. We will see how some crowds look like cohesive groups, while others look like a cacophony of isolated voices. Marc will cover the variety of crowd types that have been qualitatively identified through visual analysis and statistical techniques.
