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
