NewsTeller is a research-driven platform to analyze news. We are a community of researchers, journalists, technologists and media practitioners based at EPFL.
We develop a publicly-available and sutainable ecosystem to study the constantly-evolving news landscape:
We monitor news
We retrieve, process, store, and index a wide range of multilingual news articles and social media reactions in real-time.
We enhance news
We create an enhanced context for news articles combining content, social, and source indicators.
We develop methodologies to analyze live and historical news.
We host fact-checkers, collaborate with journalists and organize media-related events.
