Telling Breaking News Stories with Wikipedia and Social Multimedia 

Last year at the World Wide Web (WWW) conference in Rio de Janeiro, Googler +Thomas Steiner, +Seth van Hooland of Universite ́ Libre de Bruxelles, and  +Ed Summers of the U.S. Library of Congress presented MJ no more: Using Concurrent Wikipedia Edit Spikes with Social Network Plausibility Checks for Breaking News Detection (http://goo.gl/4FamqQ), in which they outline the development of the Wikipedia Live Monitor application (http://goo.gl/fb5rTq), which examines the realtime article edits on different language versions of Wikipedia.

When a major event in the world occurs, the number of concurrent edits to Wikipedia and Wikidata spikes, reflecting the active changes being made in order to generate new articles, or update the information in currently existing ones. By treating these concurrent edit spikes as signals for potential signals for breaking news events, the authors show that the application successfully detects breaking news candidates automatically. 

As social network sites commonly allow their users to publicly publish and share photos and videos, the ubiquity of devices like smartphones or tablets enables the potential of broad multimedia coverage of breaking news events. Exploring that fact, Steiner recently extended the Wikipedia Live Monitor  with the capability of automatically creating media galleries that illustrate the breaking stories with the Social Media Illustrator application.

Published via Twitter at http://goo.gl/ONJM8S, the Social Media Illustrator  looks at the possibility of automatically creating media galleries that illustrate breaking news stories at scale, using the 2014 Winter Olympics as a test event. To learn more, read the full paper, Telling Breaking News Stories from Wikipedia with Social Multimedia: A Case Study of the 2014 Winter Olympics, at (http://goo.gl/GykRRm), and check out the Twitter feed, linked below.

Somebody built the App Engine logo, and it turned out to be useful. This is purely amazing!

Telling Breaking News Stories from Wikipedia with Social Multimedia: A Case Study of the 2014 Winter Olympics
This week, I am attending the International Conference on Multimedia Retrieval (#ICMR2014) in Glasgow, Scotland. I contributed a paper to the workshop on Social Multimedia and Storytelling (#SoMuS2014) based on my work around combining Wikipedia Live Monitor and Social Media Illustrator. The title of the paper is Telling Breaking News Stories from Wikipedia with Social Multimedia: A Case Study of the 2014 Winter Olympics, you can read it on arXiv.org (deeplink to the PDF http://arxiv.org/pdf/1403.4289v1). My slides are available online (http://bit.ly/mediagalleries) and also embedded below.
