The volume of news data is enormous and expanding, it becomes almost impossible to make well-informed decisions and professionals risk to be held liable for decisions based on incomplete, inaccurate and out-of-date information. NewsReader project is  developing a decision-support tool that allows professional decision-makers to explore these story lines using visual interfaces and interactions to exploit their explanatory power and their systematic structural implications. The goal is to extract what happened to whom, when, and where. Align, storing provenance, not discarding any information. Distinguish unfolding story lines. Assist financial decision support by explaining current events. Likewise, NewsReader can make predictions from the past on future events or explain new events and developments through the past.

Ixa Group is one of the five partners in the consortium of the NewsReader Project  (EU FP7 programme, grant 316404,  Jan.2013 – Dec.2015). These are the five partners in the consortium:
