Lockheed Martin’s Integrated Crisis Early Warning System (ICEWS) Program Records 10,000 Dataset Download
Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Laboratories’ (ATL) Integrated Crisis Early Warning System (ICEWS) team recently achieved a major program milestone – the program recorded 10,000 downloads of their dataset from the Harvard Dataverse.
What's a Dataverse?
10,000...That's a Lot of Downloads
What is ICEWS?
Helping the Academic Community
ICEWS was also one of four political event datasets required and recommended for use by participants in the 2016 Grand Data Challenge at the International Conference on Social Computing, Behavioral-Cultural Modeling & Prediction and Behavior Representation in Modeling and Simulation (SBP-BRiMS2016). This year’s challenge problem asks participants to address any issue of interest that involves events and their distribution over time or space.
The ICEWS team uploaded more than 15 million events extracted from news stories onto the Harvard Dataverse to share with the research community. Approximately 50,000 new events are uploaded monthly, having been sanctioned by the U.S. Government for public release.
