The European project NewsReader develops advanced technology to process daily news streams in 4 languages, extracting what happened, when and where it happened and who was involved. NewsReader reads massive amounts of news coming from thousands of sources. It compares the results across sources to complement information and determine where the different sources disagree. Furthermore, it merges current news with previous news, creating a long-term history rather than separate events. The result is cumulated over time, producing an extremely large knowledge base that is visualized using new techniques to provide more comprehensive access.
