Daedalus improves the news preparation and documentation and helps make the editorial teams' integration easier.
The media field is involved in a drastic transformation process that goes from the business models, through the interaction with the public, to the journalist's work itself. The process of contents preparation is suffering a process of integration of the editorial teams, which were before aimed at one only piece of media (press, television, radio, Internet), whereas they are now prepared and issued independently of the media. In this process the journalists are assuming more tasks that include the original documents checking and correction, the documentation (classification, tagging or keywords assignment, etc.), the promotion of the conversation, the composition of multimedia material including the layout.
Generally, the technological improvements in the internet field and the bandwidth increasing availability are making the integration of rich formats easier, in such a way that there is an increasing audio and video availability, including live broadcasts. On the other hand, the phenomenon of the participation of the public (only "audience" in the past) as a passive and creative element is unstoppable.
Daedalus helps you
The Daedalus solutions deal with concrete aspects of the automation process of the information flow:
Spelling, grammar and style checking: the responsibility of the checking of an original document falls on the journalist (generally the author). It is not only about correcting more or less simple spelling questions, but also dealing with complex aspects of the language, like the ones considered in the spelling dictionaries and the media style books, the recognition of specialized terminology, names of people, organizations and world places, or the specific processing of the Spanish from Latin American countries.
Moderation of participation forums: the prestigious media need to detect automatically offensive or inadequate phrases, including when they are disguised by the use of chat/SMS language.
Documentation of news: journalists now assume news tagging and classification tasks that the documentation departments carried out not long ago.
Audio and video transcription: the online media contents have been enriched a lot. It is more and more necessary to make the information search among multimedia contents easier and it requires documenting and, as a last resort, transcribing the audio band.
Subtitling: the subtitling departments take charge of manipulating the news coming from the editorial team to correct and adapt them to the subtitling norms.
