RADAR is a new service that brings together human reporters and technology to scale up news production. Our team of journalists use a unique workbench including data tools, Natural Language Generation and geo-targeted distribution. As a result, we are able to find, write and distribute incisive, data-driven local news stories at very high volumes.
RADAR is delivered by RADAR AI, a joint venture partnership between PA, which has provided multimedia content and services to media brands around the world for 150 years, and Urbs Media a 3-year-old start up pioneering automation for local news.
RADAR AI’s launch product focusses on the UK, with development part funded by the Google Digital News Initiative. RADAR has completed a highly successful pilot and is now in its beta phase as an open trial. Newsrooms with a local focus can join this trial here.
