Kalev is the founder of the GDELT Project, GDELT stands for Global Database of Events, Language & Tone and the GDELT Project monitors the world's broadcast, print, and web news from nearly every corner of every country in over 100 languages and identifies the people, locations, organizations, themes, sources, emotions, counts, quotes, images and events driving our global society every second of every day, creating a free open platform for computing on the entire world. In our conversation, Kalev helps us reimagine the way we understand and interact with our global world through data and how to make sense of it all.
