D4Editor (Round 6)
The goal of the D4Editor project is to develop an advanced digital tool for assisting editors, automatically uncovering potential gaps in their coverage. This will be done by identifying the most reported stories in the overall media landscape and finding potential gaps unreported by other news outlets. Additionally, the tool will provide editors with insights into in-house productivity and reach.
Editors face the biggest workload in the newsroom in relation to processing information flow. D4Editor will look to alleviate time intensive parts of the information processing, increasing productivity and coverage. The overall goal of D4Editor is to enable outlets to increase their reach and attract greater readership of their content, as well as assist journalists in reaching their optimum capacity.
