As a data scientist at Qualogy, I have had the opportunity to work as an Innovation Fellow, on a very interesting project for the United Nations Global Pulse. We analysed Twitter data and tried to discover what people are talking about, and how this corresponds with their gender, as this might be important for policy makers. We managed to find a way to determine the sex of Twitter users by looking at their profile picture, their name and based on what they tweet about. We created an interactive visualisation that shows the results and allows users to investigate and understand the data.
