We will demonstrate an operational media monitoring system that involves a large number of data streams in multiple languages. The system for Global Media Monitoring platform http://EventRegistry.org includes (a) collecting media information from 300,000 news and social media sources, (b) performing linguistic and semantic processing in multiple languages, (c) forming events and event sequences, (d) streaming information about events in open data formats, (e) rich visualizations, and (f) search with complex queries for analysing global social dynamics. We will discuss the challenges and technical solutions.
