Explore Independent Media extracts key terms from a piece of text or a web article and offers related stories from non-corporate sources. It is being developed as part of the Five Filters project to promote independent, non-corporate media.
Note: the bulk of this code was written in a very short space of time with the intention of getting a working system up and running very quickly (see our working diary to see how it was developed and some of the problems encountered). Since then it has been refined a little bit, but it is still very rough. The source code here is more for those who are curious about implementation details rather than those who want to download and run the code — that's possible too, but will probably require some hard work and lots of path modifications in the code.
For the installation we also used:
As noted above, the code in its current state is probably only useful for those curious about implementation details. We hope to work on a new web-based version with the ability to customise news sources to use for recommendations. In the meantime the instruction below are only for downloading the code.
Everywhere the Europeans went, whether it was the Portuguese or the Spanish or the English or the Dutch, they fought with a level of violence which appalled the natives. They had never seen anything like it. That was true virtually over the entire world, with very few exceptions.— Noam Chomsky Quotes (@chomsky_quotes) July 18, 2018
Three years ago, essentially everyone in the 'mainstream' snorted and agreed Corbyn was a relic but a decent, well-intentioned person. That consensus had to be dumped when it became clear he might offer a viable, democratic choice. They had to invent a new, menacing version. https://t.co/3EfgSDjPsS— Media Lens (@medialens) July 18, 2018
Don't miss Chomsky at 30 mins on renting yourself to an employer, consent, and especially on how 'the concept of debate, first of all, is one of the most irrational inventions that human beings have come up with.. it's just the height of irrationality' 😄 https://t.co/xhC0NNI4Ue— Media Lens (@medialens) July 18, 2018
