The authors' Continuous Predictive Social Media Analytics system operates in real time on social media streams and graphs to recommend venues to visitors of geo- and temporally bounded city-scale events. By combining deductive and inductive stream reasoning techniques with visitor-modeling functionalities, this system semantically analyzes and links visitors' social network activities to produce high-quality link predictions when information about preferences is sparse. The authors demonstrate their system's quality with experiments on real-world data.
