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.

This one is with Jeff Jarvis – author, journalist and professor at the City University of New York.

We focus on data driven journalism, visualizations, infographics and innovative storytelling on the web. Check out our collection of projects taking a creative approach at presenting soccer-related data:
