Big Data Science Over the Past Web [chapter]

Miguel Costa, Julien Masanès
2021 The Past Web  
The typical way to extract knowledge from a web archive is by using its search functionalities to find and analyse historical content.  ...  This can be a slow and superficial process when analysing complex topics, due to the huge amount of data that web archives have been preserving over time.  ...  Locations are represented on a world map. The Expedition exploratory search system presented in Fig. 3 also provides a GUI with multiple components (Singh et al., 2016) .  ...
