Social Repository project in the Irish Times

All the data



Our collaborative project to build a Social Repository for Ireland is featured in an article in today's Irish Times. Titled All the data that’s fit to print – and archive for posterity, the article discusses the growing importance of data analytics in journalism, as well as the equal importance of archiving social data - which is of great interest to data analytics - in a trusted repository.

The article contains contributions from our collaborators Dr. Bahareh Heravi (Head of the Digital Humanities and Journalism Group at Insight at NUI Galway, and Lead Data Scientist at the Irish Times), and Ihab Salawdeh (Research Assistant on the Social Repository of Ireland project at Insight at NUI Galway).
