[ISEA2022] Paper: Danielle Arets, Martina Huynh, Jonas Althaus & Tijmen Altena — Newsslider: smart mining of archives


Second Summit on New Media Art Archiving
June 11, MACBA – Convent dels Àngels. Short paper.

Keywords: archives, artificial intelligence, research through design, journalism

Currently, the potential of (media) archives in journalism is underutilized. Historical data is scarcely used to connect historical developments to current events. With the design research project Newsslider, we explore how emerging technology (artificial intelligence and natural language generation) can empower journalists to connect historical events to contemporary reporting.
