Real-time Analysis and Processing of Heterogeneous News Streams with Big Data Technologies
NEWS-STREAM 3.0 aims to develop editorial systems and tools within a Big-Data-Architecture. They support journalists in filtering out relevant information from heterogeneous data streams in a fast and reliable way. In addition, journalists are supported in reviewing and verifying filtered information and to categorise data according to context. Journalists will be able to process in near real-time highly dynamic, unstructured data streams from “open data” sources, sensors and social media. At the same time they can enrich this information with structured internal archive material, external knowledge bases and Linked-Open-Data. The News-Stream 3.0 system allows a fused perspective on diverse sources and enables multimodal, contextualised, real-time journalistic research.
The News-Stream 3.0 system provides media and news providers with relevant technologies, which ensure that the task of core journalism can be effectively conducted in a data driven media future.
Deutsche Welle is a user partner with two journalistic use cases: 1. Automatic filtering and aggregation of multiple sources, and 2. Computer Assisted Reporting. Other tasks are the provision of archive material and practical testing of the pilot system.
The project runs from November 2014 – December 2017.

What comes to your mind when you think of Brazil? At the moment probably mainly ‘soccer’, right? Same over here. But we do not want to talk about last night’s game, the championship’s top players, live scores or the change of tactics. That will all be covered by our colleagues at DW Sports.
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:
