---This event has been cancelled---

Due to some technical issues during our November 2015 hackathon, the event did not go as planned. Therefore, we're inviting you to our online retake on 8 January 2016. During the day, we'll give you online access to the NewsReader database whilst the NewsReader team is available for questions and tips via chat.

Here's a short recap of the Car Wars domain:

The global automotive industry has a value in the order of $1 trillion annually. The industry comprises a massive network of suppliers, manufacturers, advertisers, marketeers and journalists. Each of these players has his/her own story, often with unexpected origins or endings; one day you may be CEO of a big car company, the next you are out and making pizzas. With NewsReader, you can uncover these stories to reconstruct the past.

This event may be of interest to you if:

  • You're interested in natural language processing and/or semantic web technology

  • You're a data journalist on an automotive desk;

  • You're an analyst sifting daily news looking for information on your company or on competitors;

  • You're a data analyst looking to understand how your customers operate their supply chain

  • You're an analyst trying to find secondary events that could influence an investment decision;

  • You're interested in visualising big data

Please register by 4 January 17:00 so we can set up your access credentials.
