AIDR—the Grand Prize winner of the 2015 Open Source Software System Challenge—is a free and open platform to filter and classify social media messages related to emergencies, disasters, and humanitarian crises. AIDR uses human and machine intelligence to automatically tag up to thousands of messages per minute. AIDR has partnered with the Centre for Humanitarian Data in order to produce this dataset monitoring conversations of Education Insecurity.

Caveats / Comments

The AIDR dataset counts relevant tweets using machine learning, and tends to approximately 80% accuracy (true positives) in recognising the topic of education insecurity, so numbers are appropriate only for broad analysis.

Due to a technical problem, AIDR did not collect education-insecurity tweets in French or Arabic during April 2020.
