Join us for a behind-the-scenes look into a machine learning application we built to automatically identify and map locations that appear in local news stories, and see a demo of it applied to published stories from our partners at The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Understanding the geography of a broad set of news stories provides opportunities to identify gaps in coverage and support new product development ideas for a local news audience.
This session is designed for:
- Newsroom leaders looking to build out their automated tool capabilities
- Anyone interested in natural language processing and mapping automation
- Editors who believe in a hyperlocal approach to tech implementation
