Digital Journalism Workshop: “Lost in the jungle”


The volume of digital information streams is constantly increasing. How can journalists keep track of an almost unmanageable flood of data without getting “lost in the jungle”?

Social media channels generate new information every minute every single day. Journalists not only have to monitor and research this information, but also separate out true important data from mere noise and misinformation or even fake content.

Come and join us at the Scoopcamp 2013 in Hamburg!

Novel search methods in archives

AXES is about digital archives. Archives and libraries face great novel opportunities with modern computer technology. Connecting single items and creating relationships among audios, videos and images is a big step in the direction of an interconnected and semantic archive.

If only you would knew what’s in your archive! AXES develops technologies to help you do just that: to interact with audiovisual libraries, helping users to discover, browse, search and enrich archives. AXES technology such as face recognition and speech transcription will open up audiovisual digital libraries and increase their exposure to the European public.

Deutsche Welle is a user partner and contributes to news use cases, user validation and dissemination.

The project runs from Jan 2011 – Dec 2014
