RADAR is a new service which harnesses the power of technology to deliver incisive, fact-based news stories to local media across the UK and Ireland. It brings together PA, the national news agency with over 150 years' experience in supplying quality content, and Urbs Media, a tech driven start up using a combination of reporters and automation to mass localise news.
Reporters And Data And Robots (RADAR) is successfully combining humans and machine to scale up local news production across core pillars such as health, education, crime, transport, housing and environment. Described by the Global Editors Network as "today's best example of AI-powered news," RADAR has already seen the publication of hundreds of local stories in a highly successful pilot stage. It is now available to all UK local newsrooms and will eventually create up to 30,000 localised stories each month.
