GEDI awarded Google funding

The Digital News Initiative (DNI), a partnership created two years ago by Google and some European publishers to support quality journalism, has announced the recipients of the third round of funding.

Of these, the GEDI Digital Division was awarded 450,000 destined for the big Thriving News project, a platform that will allow newsrooms to manage work in a more innovative and efficient way using predictive indicators to cover the right topics at the right moment and to optimize the distribution of editorial content to the most appropriate social network pages, also creating an internal marketplace for the distribution of news.

Il Secolo XIX, part of the GEDI Group, obtained 550,000 for its Journalist Digital Assistant, a system that uses Artificial Intelligence based on Machine Learning technologies for the creation of content. This tool will be able to suggest content/information/sources autonomously and proactively, complementing the editorial process managed by the journalist.
