Corby (Round 5)
In current world, the lack of information is not a problem. Much harder, especially for journalists, is to find relevant information among huge amounts of data. No human being is able to read everything that might contain something useful. Instead, we often have to rely on sources, who have an agenda of their own – or to be just lucky. We want to use AI in order to liberate journalists to do what they are best at: creating better journalism by using a wider amount of sources than never before. And by doing so, inform citizens and support democracy.
Multilingual local news bot (Round 5)
The core opportunity will be the integration of AI/ Bot tools with automated language translation technologies. The pilot project will ascertain how these techniques work best in local news context.
Local Voice of the People (Round 5)
People have many different sources and channels for content but less time in their hands. Audio content and podcasts provide an easy way to consume content even when multitasking. The problem is that audio content is often not so easily available or does not appear very well in searches. Through the projects there will be an answer to this problem by finding new methods and process of producing and publishing local news, current affairs and events in audio form in an easy-to-access and search engine friendly way.
