#newsHACK III – Language Tech
#newsHACK III will be happening on 15th & 16th December 2014, in London.
The theme will be “Automated international News Services of the future”, and prizes* will be awarded in various categories TBA nearer the event. While there is a competitive element, the main purpose of this event is networking and collaboration in this space, and to connect the BBC with people in this field.
Please note, that each participating team will need to bring one or more instances of a “Language Technology” to use for their prototypes, and to add to the mix at the event.
We are making some space for interested individuals (e.g. multilingual journalists, or UX designers) *not* bringing their own language tech, but these individuals will need to join a team who are – (we’ll help facilitate this.)
