Smart search in the social web

SocialSensor is about multimedia indexing and search in the Social Web. Content from social networks such as Twitter tweets are becoming increasingly important for news and infotainment purposes. For journalists, social media is often the only source of information in situations where other access is limited (e.g. Arab spring, conflict in Syria). But how can a journalist make sure not to miss any relevant information?

With regard to news, SocialSensor aims for developing a reliable news and trend detection algorithm. The system will identify key influentials in social networks and supports the verification of social media content.

Deutsche Welle is a user partner and contributes to news use case, validation and dissemination.



The project runs from Oct 2011 – Sep 2014

Intelligent archive of the social web

ARCOMEM is about memory institutions such as archives, museums, and libraries in the age of the Social Web. Memory institutions are more important now than ever: as we face greater economic and environmental challenges we need our understanding of the past to help us navigate to a sustainable future.

Deutsche Welle is a user partner and contributes to the broadcaster use case, dissemination and validation.

Exploiting social networks and social graphs

SocIoS unlocks the potential of social networks. Social networking sites contain an ever growing, increasingly relevant volume of multimedia content from ordinary users as well as professional sources. This mass of unstructured content is difficult to exploit – in terms of search, organisation, validation and recommendation.

How can businesses get easier access to social media content and related social graphs? SocIoS develops technology, which enables topical search across eight social networks, media item ranking/recommendation, event detection, social contact filtering, translation, sentiment analysis and IPR-handling. A journalism application provides these capabilities via a tailored user interface in order to support the process of topical journalistic research.

As a user partner Deutsche Welle developed a journalism scenario and related requirements, tested the resulting journalism application and conducted dissemination activities.

The project runs from Sep 2010 – Feb 2013
