Electome from MIT Media Lab 10/18/16

By the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute

Electome is a new tool from the Laboratory for Social Machines at the MIT Media Lab that uses data to help capture and analyze social media conversations around the 2016 presidential election.

The system uses machine learning and natural language processing to analyze hundreds of millions of tweets every day. It then sorts them into categories – from issue to candidate to civility of language – to enable journalists to compare and contrast the prevalence of issues over time.
