Events & Politics Lab – 2012 Summer Labs – BBC News Labs

We’ve just run the “Events & Politics” Lab as part of the BBC News Labs Summer Labs events.

Findings include:-

  • There is an opportunity in the Linked Data “Events” space.
  • There are plenty of opportunities in the Politics space, which could be leveraged with Linked Data.
  • Events may not be the best way to model the “Story of interest to the audience” – there is some confusion when trying to ‘jimmy’ a running “news story” into an event model.
