The GDELT Project is a realtime network diagram and database of global human society for open research Watching The Entire World

GDELT monitors the world's news media from nearly every corner of every country in print, broadcast, and web formats, in over 100 languages, every moment of every day.

 


Global Reach

 

GDELT monitors print, broadcast, and web news media in over 100 languages from across every country in the world to keep continually updated on breaking developments anywhere on the planet. Its historical archives stretch back to January 1, 1979 and update daily (soon to be every 15 minutes). Through its ability to leverage the world's collective news media, GDELT moves beyond the focus of the Western media towards a far more global perspective on what's happening and how the world is feeling about it.

 

 

Querying, Analyzing and Downloading

 

The entire GDELT database is 100% free and open and you can
download the raw datafiles, visualize it using the GDELT Analysis Service, or analyze it at limitless scale with Google BigQuery.

Treat Data As Code: open-source!

Treat Data As Code: open-source! | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it

Ben Balter argues that open data today is exactly where open source was some two decades ago, and wants to see if it's possible to fast forward the community a bit. Imagine if every time the government posted a dataset, rather than posting the data as a zip file or to a proprietary data portal, the agency treated the data as open source.

The Hidden Biases in Big Data

The Hidden Biases in Big Data | The New Global Open Public Sphere | Scoop.it
Blindly trusting it can lead you to the wrong conclusions.
Pierre Levy's insight:

This looks to be the year that we reach peak big data hype. From wildly popular big data conferences to columns in major newspapers, the business and science worlds are focused on how large datasets can give insight on previously intractable challenges. The hype becomes problematic when it leads to what I call "data fundamentalism," the notion that correlation always indicates causation, and that massive data sets and predictive analytics always reflect objective truth. Former Wired editor-in-chief Chris Anderson embraced this idea in his comment, "with enough data, the numbers speak for themselves." But can big data really deliver on that promise? Can numbers actually speak for themselves?
