Düsseldorf (pressrelations) –

pressrelations evaluates technological advancements to media monitoring workflows at the 2nd joint MULTISENSOR-EUMSSI User Day

For a total of almost three years now, pressrelations has taken active part in the research project MULTISENSOR. After this time the project, which is promoted by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union, is nearing its completion and will culminate in a second User Day in Barcelona. The event is hosted by project partner PIMEC and jointly organised with the related research project EUMSSI.

During the User Day, participants will have the opportunity to test the MULTISENSOR system and its three use case related user interfaces. Besides a prototype showing technologies for the media monitoring sector, the project has also platforms for professional journalists and SMEs.
Within MULTISENSOR seven major technological fields are being developed: Automated translation, speech-to-text conversion, summarisation, topic clustering, contextual information extraction, sentiment analysis and semantic search. For the media monitoring use case, an interface and modular technologies have been created that allow for a faster workflow in the industrys typical daily data curation processes.

Members of the projects User Group and other stakeholders are welcome to evaluate the technologies and enter into a discussion with the researchers and professionals that were involved in the development. The User Day will be held on September 22nd at Valkiria Hub Space in Barcelona. Registrations are still possible under:


MULTISENSOR is a 3-year FP7 European STREP Project, whose total budget is around EUR 4 million. The consortium comprises 9 participants in total, coming from different universities, research organisations and companies: Centre for Research and Technologies Hellas, Information Technologies Institute (CERTH-ITI) (co-ordinator, multimedia technologies), Universitat Pompeu Fabra (language technologies), EURECAT (social media analysis), Ontotext (semantic technologies), Linguatec (language technologies), everis (information technologies), pressrelations (media monitoring company), Deutsche Welle (public service broadcaster) and PIMEC (SME network).

The project aims at integrating advanced technologies with sentiment, social and spatiotemporal competence that are able to interpret, relate, translate and summarise multimedia and multilingual data and providing these technologies as services to journalists, international media monitors and SMEs who need decision support for internationalisation.
