Ambient News

Wordless journalism is the upcoming way of consuming news accompanied with the reduced usage of websites and standard news apps of single news providers. That’s why we think with our project further than tomorrow. News have to be provided to the media consumer in the right situation and on the right (smart home) device, perfectly based on her interests.
Our solution is the radical separation of news, transport and playout. We are developing an artificial intelligent translation of incoming news or information, convert it into different formats like signals, text snippets, pictograms or audio messages and distribute it to specific channels in the Internet of Things like the smart home devices. That’s how we will reach the modern media consumer, in its immediate environment.

Project in cooperation with Datenfreunde GmbH,  sh:z Schleswig-Holsteinischer Zeitungsverlag GmbH & Co. KG, Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften Hamburg supported by google.
