SENSING, ENRICHING, PREDICTING, AND SHAPING THE INSIGHTS FROM
REAL-TIME STREAMS DATA ACROSS THE GLOBE

What would it look like to use massive computing power to see the world through others' eyes, to break down language and access barriers, facilitate conversation between people, societies, and empower people with the information and insights they need to live safe and productive lives? By quantitatively codifying human society's events, dreams and fears, can we map happiness and conflict, provide insight to people and even potentially forecast global conflict in ways that allow us as a society to come together to deescalate tensions, counter extremism, and break down cultural barriers? That is the vision of the Sensemaker® Project. Put simply, the Sensemaker® Project is a real-time open data global graph over human society as seen through the eyes of the world's news media, reaching deeply into local events, reaction, discourse, and emotions of the most remote corners of the world in near-realtime and making all of this available as an open data fire hose to enable research over human society.
