Newsworthy is a news service that looks for local story leads in large amounts of statistical data using bayesian statistical models and text generation. A new, highly automated way of doing journalism.
Newsworthy gathers data on topics such as crime, property prices, unemployment and weather to and generate hundreds of newsleads for local newsrooms in Sweden every month.
The project received funding from Google's Digital News Initative in 2016.
