Zeitgeist Borders

Synthesis

Description

The Code is available on Github.

Zeitgeist (from german, spirit of the time) Borders was inspired by an article in Le Monde (Edition of feb. 15th, 2010, reproduced here (french only)) highlighting the fact that, based on google recommendations, french request on the web are specifically questioning wether famous people are jewish or not. Beyond this polemic fact, the article showed that google recommandation system and the informations it provides on popular search queries, could allow any user to analyse worldwide county-based specific cultural specificities. This project aims at allowing users to compare the recommendations they get in their country with others and question and visualize by themselves some cultural traits.

In this paper, we propose a new method and system for cultural trends analysis based on Google auto- complete suggestions. We present Zeitgeist Borders, a toolkit enabling any user to collect and analyze associations between queries, suggestions and various regions of the world. We re- port unexpected observations about several behavioural and geographical trends along with promising uses.}},
