Predicting Community Engagement on Reddit using Tensorflow, GDELT, & Cloud Dataflow (Cloud Next '18)
What if you took a huge cross-section of the world’s news from the GDELT Project, mixed it with data from Reddit, and predicted what drives community engagement with news on the world's largest online discussion site? Does the content of the article truly influence the choice of the sub-Reddit community in which it will be discussed? Or is up purely up to the submitter of the post? If you are interested in knowing what engages your audience and how it can drive up your page views, come learn about Tensorflow models. We will also show how we used Cloud Dataflow and BigQuery for feature engineering for our models.
