British researchers have been carrying out a massive content analysis project on material released by the British Library. The researchers have scrutinised local newspapers collected over the last 150 years to flesh out and confirm the build up to what then became historical events, and also to establish themes and shifts in culture. Click talks to Nello Cristianini, a professor of Artificial Intelligence, about what the analysis of big data tells us about British history.
