THE FIRST APP THAT CAPTURE THE SOUND OF ONE NEWS ITEM FROM YOUR TV, RADIO, ETC AND LETS YOU CHECK IT IN REAL TIME WITH MILLIONS OF STORIES AND GIVES YOU THE 6 MOST WIDELY DIFFERING ANGLES OF COVERAGE ALL OVER THE WORLD. If lies have an increasing amount of tools, then the truth has to have them too. That´s we created yournalist. The first app that lets you check in real time, millions of stories of the same news item and gives you the 6 most widely differing angles of coverage all over the world. Without any ideological or geographical bias. It starts like Shazam. Aim your mobile towards your tv or radio when they are talking about a topic you are interested in. In real time, YOURNALIST sends it to Watson, an IBM software that, with a deep learning algorithm, selects the keywords to find just the news that matches yours. It then searches the millions of media that are talking about it and analyses them in watson again, but to do the exact opposite for what it was designed: to find the differences instead of the similarities and give you the 6 most widely-differing points of view.
Reviewed positively in the main technology and general media outlets (4 stars in the magazine iCreate). The plus service is used today by more than 40 editorial teams around the world. EITB became the first independent and objective media outlet in spontaneous mention in the regions where it operates. 83% of users use it as their prime source of information on their mobile, sent to more than 50,000 subscribers outside the Basque Country. Coverage in the main general media outlets. Second stage of funding to launch it globally.
YOURNALIST is the only news app which, like Shazam, CAPTURES SOUND directly from TV, radio, etc. It converts it into data using DEEPLEARNING and SENTIMENT tools that seek REAL OBJECTIVITY. THE DIFFERENT FOCUSES DON’T COME FROM PREVIOUS ideological or geographical BIASES of the media. We obtain the SELECTION, BRAND AND DEGREE OF DIFFERENTIATION IN THE TREATMENT OF THE SPECIFIC NEWS ITEM due to the innovative use of WATSON (IBM) with which we subject the data to a double filter. One to identify keywords and find similar newsitems, and the other to do exactly the opposite: to identify differences, not similarities.
EITB is a public communication medium traditionally associated to an autonomous community and positioned as a medium in constant search for the truth. We wanted to strengthen our position and broaden our range outside our traditional demographic target. And to demonstrate that in these times these are not just words, we created an app that is different to all other apps from other communication media. An app from a medium that didn’t want to be your only medium. YOURNALIST: The first app that lets you check in real time, millions of stories of the same news item and gives you the 6 most widely differing angles of coverage all over the world. Without any ideological or geographical bias.
