  2. Understand social phenomena and events expressed in social media by drawing upon social media as a critical, and timely, source of information.
  3. Develop facilities and approaches that are sensitive to the personal nature of human data: Citizen centric approaches.
  4. Promote responsible innovation in the capture, analysis and use of human data.
