Various factors may contribute to the rise of global movements, like Hallyu or the Korean Wave. These could include support from the Korean government for its creative industries or be associated with the opportunities presented by social media platforms. Yet, global movements’ rapid and wild development will always hold an element of mystery. While we can’t fully explain the “human factor” and the magic behind the birth of a global movement, can we harness data on their spread, impact, and intensity across different regions in recent decades to anticipate their future trajectory?
A geo-visualisation application called Data to Power, designed to measure, map, and predict soft power—the ability to attract, engage, and influence—has successfully tested a predictive analytics tool to address precisely these questions. A mapping application employs a prediction model known as linear regression. This model relies on a supervised machine learning algorithm to analyse various data sets as numeric input values, ultimately predicting outcomes. By leveraging machine learning, the Data to Power mapping application utilises a wealth of previously collected data from open and closed institutional channels. This data is used to formulate a predictive model, transforming data analysis into a robust data intelligence system.
