Social scientists studying the activity of activist organizations are faced with an overwhelming amount of possibly biased and out of context source material.
The MONA project aims at developing a tool that gathers source material (e.g. news articles, blog posts), extracts events and their properties (e.g. actors, locations, timestamps) from these materials, analyzes links between events, and visualizes the results. By doing this, MONA attempts to alleviate the aforementioned problems.
Through this blog the MONA project team will keep you up-to-date on the progress of the project.
