ICHEC and NewsWhip take on Viral storiesPosted on 10 July 2014
ICHEC and new media start-up NewsWhip Media Ltd collaborated on a project funded by Enterprise Ireland to assess if viral stories can be accurately identified within their first hour of publication, where the “social velocity” of news stories is measured by a metric developed by NewsWhip Media Ltd.
The objective of the collaboration, was to evaluate the accuracy of the predictive value within the NewsWhip's Spike 1 hour scoring model. “ Understanding NewsWhip business model allowed us to fully capture the technical requirements needed to carry out this validation. " pointed out Nicola McDonnell, Project Manager at the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC).
Speaking about the project, Sufian Al Aswad, Business Development and Industry Liaison at ICHEC, highlighted the benefits of the support programmes provided by Enterprise Ireland. “ Our active SME programme, enables us to collaborate with companies from various sectors on innovative projects. ” he said. “ The programme provide SMEs access to cutting edge technology and high level of expertise, in addition to the funding and business mentoring provided by Enterprise Ireland, all of which sets the desired environment for Irish companies to achieve their objectives and targets for growth.”
