Dr Tobias Preis is an Associate Professor of Behavioural Science and Finance at the University of Warwick where he co-directs the Data Science Lab. Preis is also a Faculty Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute. His recent research has aimed to analyse and predict real world behaviour with the volumes of data being generated by our interactions with technology, using data from Google, Wikipedia, Flickr and other sources. His research is frequently featured in the news, by outlets including the BBC, the New York Times, the Financial Times, Science, Nature, Time Magazine, New Scientist and the Guardian. He has given a range of public talks including presentations at TEDx events in the UK and in Switzerland.
In this paper, the authors use a topic-modeling approach to quantify the changing attentions of a major news outlet, the Financial Times, to issues of interest.
