The ETCL (Electronic Textual Cultures Lab) (Raymond G. Siemens and Luis Meneses, University of Victoria), in collaboration with the Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE) initiative and the Canadian Social Knowledge Institute (C-SKI), is developing the Social Media Engine, an innovative search engine based on data from social media collected by Digital Science

The Social Media Engine extracts topics from the scientific articles of a given corpus – in this case, the Érudit platform documents – through topic modelling, and associates them with ongoing social media discussions. This allows to suggest results related to current hot topics and thus to adapt to the quickly evolving forms of information sharing.
