BNS Data Hub (Round 6)

Lithuania Project type: prototype BNS Lithuania, part of Eesti Meedia Group


Journalists today spend more and more time monitoring various data sources, but are struggling to keep up with the volume of information being generated. BNS Data Hub will automatise this task by gathering and sifting through information, enabling journalists to concentrate on other tasks.

The solution

The availability of open data is constantly increasing, meaning journalists are now having to sift through large portions of information across multiple platforms and sources. This manual and repetitive task is hugely time intensive, and often results in journalists sacrificing other duties or skipping data research all together - leaving valuable news unreported. BNS Data Hub will gather publicly available data from websites and online databases, and will notify journalists about new information when specific criteria is met.
