Automated Follow-up Stories (Round 4)

Spain Project type: prototype Datadista


Automated Follow-up Stories is a platform for journalists to improve the process of following up their published stories using open data, Freedom of Information requests and investigative journalism.

The solution

Journalists updating workflow, after a data-based story is found and published, have to follow the same steps to verify the changes again and again – so following-up becomes a task that increases exponentially over time. Automated Follow-up Stories will be a platform to automate this follow-up work as much as possible. It's an automated machine that helps with updating data, related stories, topics and contacting people involved.
