A team of Master of Science in Information Systems students from the J. Mack Robinson College of Business placed first in the SAP competition, Project Dream: Election 2016. Their “Women in Power” project compared support for the Democrat Party presidential nominees, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, using data mined from Twitter. You can read more about their fascinating project by clicking here, but the Library is particularly excited about this part:
The women credit part of their success to the support they had from not just Robinson College, but also Georgia State as a whole. They were able to utilize CURVE in the Georgia State library to display their data and film their findings. “We got to tape our presentation at CURVE. We felt like we were on the news.” Diwan said. The CURVE also let them view their data in a wide format [on the interactWall], showing everything in an easy to understand and analyze way.
The Library extends an exuberant “Congratulations!” to the team, and we’re so happy that the CURVE space played a part in your successful project!
