Business News Platform (Round 6)

Germany Project type: large Handelsblatt Media Group GmbH & Co. (KG, DvH Medien GmbH)


The Business News Platform (BNP) reads and analyses business and financial news articles and provides an overview of the most relevant topics. The BNP identifies entities like companies, people or topics mentioned in the article and assigns them a sentiment. The sentiment reflects whether the entity is mentioned positively, negatively or neutral. Furthermore, the platform identifies the topics that drive the sentiment.

The solution

The BNP intends to condense news about a specific topic, brand, or industry and deliver a real-time analysis of what sentiment the coverage sets. This will provide business clients with an overview in a dynamic, real-time app / browser dashboard.
