Winners of Romanian BigData/DataScience Contest on GDELT

This past September the Big Data / Data Science Meetup in Cluj-Napoca, Romania held a workshop titled “How to think in MapReduce” that used GDELT to explore working with large datasets inside of Apache Hadoop.  In November they hosted their first BigData/DataScience Contest asking meetup participants “to take these GDELT datasets and to do crazy things with them.”  They even put together a Romanian-language YouTube video offering a quick tutorial on working with the GDELT Analysis Service.  They've put up a page now with the final projects, including "Romania Influencers", "Does an Epidemic Affect Us on a Psychological Level", "Exploring GDELT Data Events", and "Engage in Unconventional Mass Violence."
