The latest addition – The intelligent assistant
We helped Il Secolo XIX embed an AI-powered digital assistant into their newsroom. Using advanced machine learning techniques, we trained algorithms powerful enough to analyze and classify the paper’s content in real time. Now, when a journalist starts a story, the assistant continuously checks the text for data consistency, suggested links to other sources, and spelling, as well as ensuring the syntax is suitable for each story. By offering them prompts to other content it thinks will be relevant, whether from previous stories or external resources, the assistant gives journalists a completely new way to check sources, develop background understanding, and add extra content they might have otherwise missed. The result: After just six months, the entire newsroom was using the assistant to increase their productivity, boost the quality and accuracy of their journalism, make new connections between stories, and create rich and consistent digital content. And with this premium content came new opportunities to grow revenues through print and digital subscriptions.
