Meet Deep Dive, the New York Times’ experimental context engine and story explorer

Meet Deep Dive, the New York Times’ experimental context engine and story explorer | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
Using an article as a jumping-off point, Deep Dive can create a custom, contextual feed that will allow readers to follow topics in the news.

 

Thinking about the sheer volume of information — stories, images, videos, data — available from The New York Times can evoke a simultaneous glee and terror. Skimming Times Wire gives you an idea of the hundreds of pieces of content they produce each day. For readers, it’s a tip-of-the-iceberg thing: Yes, on a day-to-day basis you have access to the news and a decades-spanning archive, but you’re not seeing anything close to all of it.

The task (or, more accurately, one of the tasks) for beta620, the Times experimental projects group, is to find a better way to make the newspaper’s information more readily available — both to readers and to the Times itself. Their latest stab at the problem is something they’re calling Deep Dive, a project that aims to give readers a richer, more nuanced understanding of stories.

Deep Dive uses the Times’ massive cache of metadata from stories to go, as the name suggests, deeper into a news event by pulling together related articles. So instead of performing a search yourself within the Times and weeding out off-topic results, Deep Dive would provides readers a collection of stories relating to a topic, based on whatever person, place, event or topic of their choosing. So let’s say you’re interested in protests in Yemen, with Deep Dive you could use an article from nytimes.com as a seed and let the system collect a history of previous items relating to news from the region.

It’s a novel project, still just in demonstration phase — one that aims to let the Times put its extensive archives to better use, but also to create a different experience for consuming news. David Erwin, a software engineer with beta620, said they began building Deep Dive to address problems they were having in following the life of a single news story — and the realization that they were in a position to do something about that. “It kind of came organically from a need that we felt ourselves to better understand what was going on as well as an expression of the potential of in our data and technology,” Erwin said.
