AI-powered classifications vs Keywords. Part 1/2: Editorial Orientations detection.[updated]

Going beyond a 1-dimensional access to knowledge.

For years, access to knowledge has been ruled by keywords presence. Search engines, corpus selection for business intelligence, DSPs for online advertising, Brand Safety, Watch alerts…

All is about the presence or absence of keywords to trigger the selection of content: A 1-dimensional access, keywords based, to knowledge. Linear. Limited to 0 (absent) or 1 (present).

Keywords presence does not sense angles, subtlety and orientations taken by the author (nor the sensitivity over time. Today’s meanings are the same any other day).

For example, the presence of “Christmas gift” might be “ok” but is it in a context of “Military defense” and “Weapon”? Can you maintain queries excluding all related, always evolving dictionaries of synonyms and be sure your brand won’t be exposed?

After all, a word can have several meanings depending on its context and the time it is read. AI-Powered Classifications are the solution:

AI-Powered Classifications are adding 2 more dimensions: Editorial orientations and timing context.

Today, we will focus on editorial orientations detection.

Next week, we will explain the sensitivity to the time of publication.

[update] The second part is now published:

AI-powered classifications vs Keywords. Part 2/2: Evolution over time.

Both, AI-Powered Classifications and keywords based selections are unbiased, universal and up-to-date. Because TrustedOut is AI-Powered, our machine learning guarantees the same non-humain, machine powered benefits.

Editorial Orientations Example:
1 event, 2 countries, 3 articles, 10 classifications.

The event: let’s take North Korea announcing a special Gift to the US.

The 2 countries: We then selected 3 articles from a Google Search on “North Korea Gift” for the US and “Coree du Nord Cadeau” for France.

The 3 articles: we randomly picked USAToday, CBSNews and Le Figaro.

Here are the top 10 classifications TrustedOut came up with. For each we’ve added how the media is spotted for its Political Orientations (beta)
