​Dalet Brings AI to the Newsroom

The first in a new generation of smart assistants for journalists is said to boosts usage of content, fosters collaboration and augments editorial workflows.

Dalet Content Discovery, part of the Galaxy MAM platform, uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to build smart content recommendations for editorial teams.

First brought to market as part of the Dalet Unified News Operations solution, Dalet Discovery Board presents to journalists contextual suggestions, providing greater content visibility and utilization across the newsroom.

The Content Discovery feature uses automatic content tagging, topic extraction and key phrase searches to reducing the time-consuming process of manually searching for news story assets.

Kevin Savina, director of product strategy, Dalet, says, “The first of a new generation of powerful assistants for journalism, Dalet Content Discovery combines the power of AI and ML technology with the advanced data model, the orchestration capability and a new AI integration framework in order to tag and index, align, relate and suggest content in a contextual and meaningful way.

“The augmented media workflow starts automatically in the background with Dalet Galaxy orchestrating several types of cognitive services. Scripts and media assets are automatically enriched, generating tags that the platform then uses for smart contextual recommendations to the users, as well as for automated data-driven processes.” Savina continues, “The journalist launches Dalet Content Discovery Board, which displays suggested content that matches their assignments or work in progress. The suggestions automatically refresh when new relevant assets are entered into the system. Presented suggestions can include production assets, archived assets, studio guests, assets in use for other news stories as well as other similar topic stories that may be scheduled or have already been broadcasted.”

Collaboration across departments is a common challenge especially among large, multi-site news organizations. This gives journalists covering similar story beats, the ability to easily connect on topics that require collaboration while still keeping controlled access to sensitive stories. The visual snapshot of newsroom activity on any given topic also lets news directors easily view various story angles across different departments, allowing them to better balance the overall news lineup.
