GDELT Visual Knowledge Graph Reaches 46 Million Images

We are tremendously excited to announce that as of this afternoon, the GDELT Visual Knowledge Graph (VGKG) has reached 46 million images processed through Google's Cloud Vision API deep learning neural network algorithms, making it what we believe is the largest open dataset of deep learning processing of images. Each day GDELT feeds more than half a million images from online news articles published in every country of the world in 65 languages through Google's deep learning algorithms to annotate them with the objects and activities they depict, recognizable text, geographic location, logos, and even the emotions of each human face present.

You can download the data today!

Stay tuned for several incredibly exciting announcements relating to this dataset! In the meantime, here are some links to more information about the dataset:
