We wanted to improve the work of the journalist, and to make sure that in one step they can get reliable information about trends and patterns in terminology, and use it in their work.
How it works
The app processes the news through AlJazeera API. It extracts, analyses and visualises correlations among terms.
Challenges I ran into
Create a nosql database to use graph database. Create the logical model to recognize the patterns in any context of an article.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We have enjoyed every moment of our work together. Our team was qualified by diversity and dialogue. Every member engaged with the idea from a different perspective and informed and supported the work of the others. An excellent team to work with.
What I learned
NoSQL. The importance of numbers in extracting meaning for journalism. Looking at the problem from different points of view.
What's next for arithm3dia
We are considering a second phase which will entail developing the app for research purposes, and providing the possibility for journalists to use it with different sources (official statements and other documents they need to write their stories, in place of news items).
