Live Webinar Event:
The Global Twitter Heartbeat Project

Join SGI for this live webinar event as we take an in-depth behind the scenes look at the Global Twitter Heartbeat Project

The Global Twitter Heartbeat project performed real-time stream processing of ten percent of Twitter's 500 million daily tweets as they were posted. The project analyzed every tweet to assign location (not just GPS-tagged tweets, but processing the text of the tweet itself), and tone values and then visualizes the conversation in a heat map infographic that puts tweet location, tweet density and tone into a unified geospatial perspective. With SGI UV, the entire process from ingest to data analysis to heat map runs at a speed that allows visualization of a map frame per second.
