Use AI to improve operations with an impact

We helped a news agency improve its Business Operations by helping journalists find all articles related to one topic from other news outlets by automatically tagging them with predetermined tags (e.g. Brexit). The articles are displayed in an app for easy access.

Objective

Achieve Operational Excellence: our client’s journalists have faster access to a topic overview.

How?

Using state-of-the-art NLP technology, articles are transformed into a numerical representation that depends on the topics discussed in it. Articles with similar numerical representations are articles dealing with the same topics, even if they are phrased very differently or are written in different languages. Looking for similar articles in terms of this new representation allows all kinds of advanced text-processing such as identifying related articles.

Success criteria

The returned articles are of good quality, even in different languages.

Results

The model will be in production in Q4 2019; results are expected Q1 2020.
