What is the mood about France in the news?
The TAC Mood Index is a way of looking at how Big Data can be used to monitor sentiment towards countries through complex text mining and machine learning algorithms.
TAC ECONOMICS' research team has automated the reading of more than 900 carefully selected news sources across the globe (Financial Times, Reuters, The Telegraph, US Federal Reserves publications, news feeds,...), looks at them every day, and applies sophisticated semantic analytical algorithms to see whether the news about countries are positive or negative.
Our current research suggests that it is a very promising field for enhancing analytical and predictive capabilities for a large range of issues, including economics, financial markets or brand perception.
More than 135 countries covered
The Mood Index currently covers more than 135 countries and some corporates. See below The Mood Index on 14 selected countries.
