More Solutions for Multilingual Newsrooms: DW at swihack

Team BBC DW SWI

Last month, DW participated in the swihack in Bern/Switzerland, hosted by SWI swissinfo.ch. Kay Macquarrie (of DW Innovation) and Elisabetta Tollardo (DW’s Head of Infographics) joined journalists, designers, developers and linguists, from the BBC, SWI, and NZZ to tackle some of the challenges faced by multilingual newsrooms. Participants spent two days developing solutions and better tools – ideally with an open source concept. In this post, we’re documenting the great work done by Kay’s and Elisabetta’s teams. (more…)

Multilingual media monitoring with smart content analysis

MULTISENSOR_LogoMULTISENSOR is developing new multilingual online media analysis technologies. The aim is to enable professional media monitors (e.g. journalists, press agencies, analysts) to attain a comprehensive and exact understanding of topics being discussed on the web.

The MULTISENSOR platform scans multiple heterogeneous sources, then translates and processes the content. It visualizes details about sentiment, entities, social and other important aspects necessary to provide context. Adding automated summarization of each content item MULTISENSOR helps you to better distinguish the relevant signals among the noise.

Deutsche Welle is a user partner, leading the use case development and requirements gathering. We are also involved in dissemination and evaluation of the project’s results.

The project runs from November 2013 – November 2016.
