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.
