EXTRA - The EXtraction Rules Apparatus

United Kingdom Project type: prototype IPTC - International Press Telecommunications Council


The International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC) will build EXTRA: The EXTraction Rules Apparatus, an open-source platform for rules-based classification of multilingual news content. EXTRA will utilize high-quality subject tags, instead of hand tags or automation, so publishers can rapidly adapt to breaking news and low-frequency topics, improve content recommendations, ad targeting and subject-specific content streams.
