The report presents a methodology that can be implemented for various topics and sources, enabling a data-driven agenda setting for policy, with problem recognition, definition and selection.The text mining analysis is based on a novel dataset of technology news articles and academic working papers.&nbsp;Using web-scraping tools, more than 213 thousand articles, and more than 139 thousand working papers were collected. The sources include 14 major English-language technology websites from the US, EU and Australia, and 2 working paper repositories, covering both social and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) sciences.&nbsp;The data has been collected for a period of 40 months (between 2016-01-01 and 2019-04-30).</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>To demonstrate the potential of the methodology, deep dives are prepared for 8 umbrella topics, chosen from the most trending technologies and issues:</p>\n\n<p>\u25cf Artificial intelligence and machine learning</p>\n\n<p>\u25cf Internet of Things</p>\n\n<p>\u25cf Blockchain and cryptocurrencies</p>\n\n<p>\u25cf Quantum computing</p>\n\n<p>\u25cf Internet regulation</p>\n\n<p>\u25cf Social media and content crisis</p>\n\n<p>\u25cf Market competition</p>\n\n<p>\u25cf Chinese tech sector</p>",
