Automated multimedia news production (Round 6)

The automation system must deal with the complexity of the Czech language, use the appropriate grammatical constructions and handle the choices of suitable expressions. The multimedia and relation engine cannot rely only on the basic metadata but it must also consider the context. The solution involves AI and NLG algorithms to automatically generate news based on smart flexible templates and data coming from a variety of sources and to find the appropriate related news items. The system will be fully integrated into the news agency and publishing workflows and will be controlled by the editors without specific IT knowledge.

Behavioural model of content monetisation (Round 5)

Behavioral economics can help media outlets better understand the preferences of their customer segments. At the core of this project is the basic assumption that news outlets underutilize readers' willingness to pay for quality news content. While some subscription or pay-for-article systems have gone through market testing, they often lack in-depth designs aimed at targeting specific and irrational barriers to purchase. This project wants to pilot a new way for the whole industry by focusing purely on the customer.

Artificial Intelligence Article Analysis (Round 4)

When a journalist writes an article, apart from the text itself, they have to provide various additional information and metadata to make the article more informative and popular. These tasks are time-consuming, involve significant manual work and are error prone. Moreover, the results are not always optimal. The system will remove the repetitive and non-creative part of this process. It will analyse the text of the article while still in the CMS (Content Management System) and, when requested, will offer ranked suggestions of stock photos, related articles and content tags for the journalists to choose from. All while adhering to the internal rules and preferences of the media house.
