Why are we there? EBU BDC addresses issues important for both our work and that of the EBU. Furthermore, dw_innovation will contribute to the conference. Data expert Mirko Lorenz is part of a panel on fact checking and ubiquity. He will give an update on NewsStream, a German big data research project run by dpa, da, Fraunhofer, and Neofonie. The team is currently beta testing a range of tools able to detect and filter large amounts of data for distribution analysis and other purposes. Mirko will also talk about other data-driven dw_innovation projects like Truly Media, Your Data Stories, euBusinessGraph, and Summa.
