Abstract

The ViEWS project started up in January 2017 with funding from the European Research Council's Advanced Grant scheme. ViEWS develops, tests, and iteratively improves an early-warning system based on the statistical analysis of data. Monthly updated ViEWS forecasts have been made publicly available since June 2018 at http://views.pcr.uu.se. We continue to expand the machine-learning models used in the project as well as the algorithms developed to evaluate performance of such as system. 2019-2020 we will also be adding topic modeling and other language-processing approaches using large text datasets. An overview of the system is available open-access at https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0022343319823860.
