At the heart of data

In this period of Big Data and Open Data, data and metadata linked to Ina collections have become a subject in their own right, opening the way to new uses.

Ina STAT provides quarterly statistics on television news

The everyday management of millions of hours of archives and the databases, which allow for their description, is Ina’s job. Our approach to our collections has evolved with information technology since the 1980s.

Today, Ina’s databases, including the legal deposit launched over 20 years ago, have become as much as a research subject as a research tool. They feed into the research of certain academics, who use them for their comprehensive, reliable information.

For over ten years, Ina STAT has provided analyses on the statistical use of data linked to television news. This statistics-monitoring tool offers a set of quantitative indicators, which report on the thematic content of television news broadcast by the six national Hertzian channels. Ina STAT enables us to draw comparisons, to follow developments over time, to highlight the main trends in media coverage and, finally, to provide food for thought on the way information is processed.

Open Data: Data for all

Besides quarterly newsletters offering theme-based analyses, the data are available on this site and the government site that provides access to public data,

Ina STAT was launched in 2006 to illustrate the possible uses of data. Since then, Ina has created numerous tools and research projects, such as the Transmedia Observatory, which allows us to produce studies by crossing data from different media (press, television, radio, Twitter, etc.). This research can be used to produce quantitative studies for clients or within the framework of academic projects.

Data mining: exploring data

Finally, the archiving and indexing of millions of hours of images and sounds also led Ina to develop research projects geared towards data mining.

How can masses of data be represented visually? How can content be automatically picked up from a stream, or known speakers identified within a programme and their words transcribed? These are but two of the research topics conducted by Ina in recent years, the results of which can be seen and tested in the Research Area.
