A collaboration between Google and news publishers in Europe
RADAR (Round 3)
Project type: large
Press Association news agency (Press Association Group)
RADAR will deliver a daily diet of compelling stories for local news outlets. Using a combination of editorial expertise and automation, applied to the burgeoning supply of open data and the increasing sophistication of distribution tools, RADAR will provide a major enhancement to the local digital news ecosystem, with some 30,000 stories a month created by Urbs journalists and AI, and distributed by the Press Association.
Mass localising news stories in this way can significantly benefit the news ecosystem by providing a high quality, high volume of content for many new and established regional media outlets. This will provide a significant boost to the local media industry at a time when budgets are under increasing pressure - but when the public's interest in local news is as high as ever.
