I can’t form a team in this Hackathon since I’m a MongoDB employee, but since it seems we have quite a few hackers and not enough ideas, here’s one.
News can be very overwhelming and depressing. Use the sentiment analysis (Announcing The Global Entity Graph (GEG) Neural Sentiment Dataset – The GDELT Project) from the GDELT dataset to surface some GOOD news.
This could manifest in a few different ways like:
- A mobile app that shows push notification when good news is posted to the data set.
- A website that surfaces a single good news item and lets you refresh to see more.
- A search engine that lets you enter a keyword (“actor”) and brings up a list of any nice articles about it
- Your awesome idea here.
