1 Tracking Disease Outbreaks and Health Disparities using Big Data, Social Media, GIS, and Social Network Analysis Dr. Ming-Hsiang Tsou Director of the Center for Human Dynamics in the Mobile Age Professor, Department of Geography San Diego State University February 20, 2015

2 What is Big Data? Image source: (definition from IBM, and WIPRO) Is this a good definition of Big Data?

3 Big Data is Human-Centered Data Big Data is dynamic datasets created by or derived from human activities, communications, movements, and behaviors (Tsou, 2015, in review). The term, big data, should refer to big ideas, big impacts, and big changes for our society rather than only focusing on big volume.

4 Big Data Category (Tsou, 2015). Social life data include popular social media services (Twitter, Flickr, Snapchat, YouTube, Foursquare, etc.), online forums, online video games, and web blogs. Health data include electronic medical records (EMR) from hospitals and health centers, cancer registry data from state and local communities, official disease outbreak tracking and epidemiology data Business and commercial data include credit card transactions, online business reviews (such as Yelp and Amazon reviews), supermarket membership records, shopping mall transaction records per store, credit card fraud examination data, enterprise management data, and marketing analysis data. Transportation and traffic data include GPS tracks (from taxi, buses, Uber, bike sharing programs, and mobile phones), traffic censor data (from subways, trolleys, buses, bike lanes, highways), social media data (from check-ins, Waze, and other social media platforms), and mobile phone data (from data transmission records and cellular network data). Scientific research data include earthquakes sensors, weather sensors, satellite images, crowd sourcing data for biodiversity research, volunteered geographic information, and census data.

5 Data Integration / Data Fusion Explore their spatiotemporal relationships in both network space and geographical space. Health Data Layer Image provided by Dr. Atshushi Nara (Associate Director of HDMA Center).

6 The Challenge of Big Data Analytics: Big Data are very Messy, Noisy, and Unstructured! Image Source: Require collaboration efforts from linguistics, computer scientists, data mining experts, statisticians, physicists, modelers, and domain experts. Human Dynamic in the Mobile Age (HDMA)

7 Geography (place and time) is the KEY for Understanding and Integrating Big Data (Tsou and Lietner, 2013) Big Data (information) Time Place

8 Research Showcase #1: Geo-Targeted Social Media Analytics for Tracking Flu Outbreaks in U.S.

9 Geo-Targeting Data Collection (Twitter APIs) Filter Machine Learning Trend Analysis Spatial Analysis Analysis SMART Dashboard Visualization

10 How to Collect Social Media Data? Source: Twitter Search APIs to collect public tweets (Geo-targeted) Keywords: flu and influenza. Region: 17 miles radius from the center of 31 U.S. Cities. Time: September 30, 2013 (Week 40) March 23, 2014 (Week 12) Twitter Search API: based on the user profile (locations) and gazetteers (San Diego: include La Jolla, La Mesa, Chula Vista) (FREE for Search APIs) Human Dynamic in the Mobile Age (HDMA)

11 Collect Tweets from Top 31 U.S. Cities (17 miles radius) 31 different cities across the United States (chosen based on their population sizes): Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Los Angeles, Memphis, Milwaukee, Nashville-Davidson, New Orleans, New York, Oklahoma City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. Human Dynamic in the Mobile Age (HDMA)

12 Normalizing City Tweeting Rate by Census Data City Population = Combine all census track population numbers within the circle. (Different from the official record of City Population) Human Dynamic in the Mobile Age (HDMA)

13 Filter and Refine Big Data (Remove Noises) Number of tweets 10,678 5,398 4,947 4, Machine Learning Total Flu tweets collected: 307,070. Final valid flu tweets: 88,979.

14 Real-Time Monitoring of Flu Outbreaks in U.S. (National Scale combined 31 Cities), flu season (R) value = National ILI (Influenza-like illness) Two weeks delay National Tweet rate (31 Cities average) Real time update 10 days earlier than ILI

15 Multi-Level (Scale) Analysis: (Regional and Municipal Scales) Regional ILI Region 4 Region 5 Human Dynamic in the Mobile Age (HDMA)

16 ER ILI data is better than SP ILI Weekly Valid Flu Tweeting Rates Compare with Emergency Department ILI in Different Cities Tweet rate per 100,000 Sentinel provided ILI rate Averaged ILI rate (missing data) * P < 0.05; ** P < 0.005; *** P < Correlation between City-level Sentinel Provided ILI Rates vs. Tweeting rate is VERY BAD! (SP ILI is not reliable?) 16

17 Trend Analysis at the Municipal Scale (San Diego) with the Lab-tested confirmed flu cases San Diego: Lab confirmed Flu Cases vs Tweeting Rate: (R) value =

18 Two research papers in the Journal of Medical Internet Research Human Dynamic in the Mobile Age (HDMA)

19 Next Step: Monitor Flu Outbreaks in Real-Time? The HDMA Center is developing the SMART Dashboard: SMART Dashboard: Social Media Analytic and Research Testbed (Beta)

20 SMART Dashboard Social Media Analytic and Research Testbed Live Demo For 5 mins Real-time social media analytics (Trend Analysis, Word Clouds, Top URL, web pages, Top Hashtages/Mentions/Stories).

21 New Topic: Tracking Ebola

22 Tracking Flu Outbreaks in 2014/2015 Flu Season (Not as smooth as 2013 or 2012)

23 Only GPS-tagged Tweets Collected Now # of Filtered ILI Tweets, Top 30 US Cities, as of February 9, 2015 (from SMART dashboard) Only 1% -4% tweets has GPS coordinates. Problems!!! Twitter broke its Search APIs on 11/20/2014 and only returned GPS-tagged tweets only. (Reduce 90% -95% of tweets collected) CDC Influenza Positive Tests, National Data Summary, through Weeks 40-3, Season

24 Comparison between ILI and GPS-only Tweets among 30 U.S. Cities Red: National ILI, Purple: GPS Only Tweets Tweeting Rate, multiplied by 10 for flu season Human Dynamic in the Mobile Age (HDMA)

25 The Limitation of Social Media For Flu Outbreak Monitoring

26 Social Media User Profiles Social Media messages can NOT represent all population, but it can provide warning signals and real-time updates. Some flu virus may have bigger impacts to Elder People than Younger People Survey

27 Only 1% - 4% of GPS Tweets within the Free Garden Hose Tweets (1%) Only 1% -4% tweets has GPS coordinates. 80% tweets has city-level location info (user profile). Public (Free) Twitter APIs can only collect 1% of total tweets within a region. (Garden Hose). But our unique Search API methods can collect up to 100% of requested tweets using Keywords and region combination. Twitter Firehose (Massive, real-time stream of tweets): Not-free, expensive. Historical Firehose Tweets can be purchased by Tweet Data-reseller partners: GNIP, SocialFlow, MediaSift, etc. (expensive).

28 User Privacy Issue Concerns about Big Brother. Although all the tweets collected from APIs are public tweets (everyone can search them and retrieve them). Some content of tweets may contain personal private information (real names, locations of homes, offices, private conversations, medical situations, etc.)

29 Social Network Analysis (SNA) The top 30 U.S. city Whooping cough Twitter message networks (mentions networks) : Social Network Nodes User Profiles Data collection temporal coverage July 22 to December 9, 2014 SharylAttikson: Investigative Journalist.
