We employed the DSA toolkit to tell this story with the following steps.

  1. A script used Beautiful Soup to scrape the links from the Wikipedia article and filtered the links so that only mementos were returned
  2. Hypercane selected the resources and generated the metadata for the story:
    1. It first executed AlNoamany's Algorithm:
      1. Clustered the mementos in each slice by Gensim's LDA implementation
      2. Ranked the mementos in each cluster by the DSA scoring equation
      3. Filtered each cluster for the highest ranking mementos
      4. Ordered each memento by publication date
    2. It analyzed all mementos to automatically discover the most frequent sumgrams and named entities present in the overall story
    3. It analyzed all images in these mementos to automatically select the best image for the overall story
    4. It then formatted the data for the story based on all of this input
  3. Raintale took the input from Hypercane and rendered the final product with information supplied by MementoEmbed
