iParticipate: Automatic Tweet Generation from Local Government Data


With the recent rise of Open Government Data, innovative technologies are required to leverage this new wealth of information. Therefore, we present a system combining several information processing techniques with micro-blogging services to demonstrate how this data can be put to use in order to increase transparency in political processes, and encourage internet users to participate in local politics. Our system uses publicly available documents from city councils which are processed automatically to generate highly informative tweets.
