Anonymized dumps of the stack exchange data are available here. Do you know projects or article that have been using these data (for social network analysis or information retrieval) ? My little research on the subject on Google Scholar & co seems to indicate that this dataset has been very seldom used.

  • $\begingroup$ I think it is borderline whether this can be answered well. Individuals answering it would have to do an unreasonable amount of research IMO. However, unlike a a shopping question or "what's the best Foo for Bar", I think it is possible for there to be a long-lasting and useful answer. Hence I have started a Community Wiki answer. $\endgroup$ Commented Sep 12, 2017 at 9:20
  • $\begingroup$ SO's data blog contains some good projects by the in-house data science folks. Not sure if it is the from the dump or not :D $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @debzsud have you seen anything yourself? I searched a lot but just saw the link of the answer that has been provided. I guess projects using that will be so much great. $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 10, 2018 at 19:29
