LNR Concept Mapper (Round 4)

Germany Project type: prototype LIQUID NEWSROOM


The LNR Concept Mapper automatically identifies and analyses the topics and concepts in political discussions in both published articles online and on Twitter.

The solution

Ahead of the general election in Germany, Liquid Newsroom wanted to discover if there was a gap between the political conversations happening on social media and what was being discussed in the mainstream media. The LNR Concept Mapper will close that gap. Instead of focusing on keywords, it will allow the automatic discovery of concepts in digital texts, so political journalists can rely on more accurate data about relevant trends, which might otherwise stay unreported. It can help shape the political narrative around elections - highlighting what topics are most important to people, and which of those are being missed by the media.
