The OpenGenderTracking project aims to build software that assists with analyzing the gender balance of news content.
GoalsOur initial goal is to create a standalone service that accepts content and is able to provide metrics about its gender balance. The service will be extendable to allow different sources of content, and have a variety of metrics that will return the gender balance of the content provided.
WhoOpenGenderTracker is a project by Irene Ros and Adam Hyland from Bocoup in collaboration with Nathan Matias of the MIT Center for Civic Media.
