Abstract

The News Angler project aims to support journalists in finding new and unexpected connections and angles in the news. The project therefore explores how recent artificial intelligence (AI) techniques — such as knowledge graphs, natural-language processing (NLP) and machine learning (ML) — can support high-quality journalism that exploits big and open data sources. A central contribution is News Hunter, a series of prototype journalistic knowledge platforms (JKPs).
