Analyzing the Digital Talk – TEDx Presentation

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to spark deep discussion and connection. TEDxModulUniversity was an independently organized TED event and the first of its kind held at a university in Vienna, hosted and organized by a young and passionate team of volunteers.

In one of the talks, Arno Scharl presented automated methods to analyze digital communication – trends in news media coverage, for example, or the discussions on social media platforms. He introduced two applications that visualize how societal issues of global relevance are being perceived by various stakeholders, drawing on the technologies developed within the DecarboNet project and with a special focus on sustainability communication and UNEP Live, the platform of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
