NC4 provides their customers with breaking news alerts as incidents occur by monitoring and analyzing over 2,000 news sources. The goal of this project is to further automate NC4’s online information filtering process, allowing analysts to maintain a sharper focus on news events and their potential impact on clients. The NC4 Clinic team has worked to develop new systems for collecting, analyzing, and distributing information to NC4’s analysts.
