Launch: Digital Watch AI-powered media barometer

19 October 2020


Event description

Launching on Monday, 19th October | Online

Media coverage – or lack of coverage – is a good indicator of national policy priorities, new technological developments, and issues raised by various actors.  

The new Digital Watch media barometer will use AI tools to analyse the coverage of digital issues across global media. The barometer will help practitioners monitor the pulse of global and regional debates, as well as priorities in the digital field.
