Partner: Media Cloud

DS4CG 2023. In an increasingly digital landscape for media across the globe, the need for content moderation, misinformation detection, and bias analysis has risen. In partnership with Media Cloud, we evaluated existing tools for extracting author names in news articles across 10 languages, which allow researchers to analyze media based on the author. We designed a pipeline to execute byline extraction from the evaluated tools and determined that a multistep approach of heuristic and machine learning models will lead to the best byline extraction tool.
