This technology allows the Press Association to accurately semantically annotate news assets (stories and images) with linked data concepts (locations, people, organisations etc), so PA can provide APIs for their consumers based on rich semantic and geospatial aggregations. These semantic APIs let us provide answers to consumer questions such as "Give me all the articles about Shale Gas Fracking within 30km of Blackpool", or "Give me all the articles about The Arab Spring, that mention Barrack Obama and Bashar Assad". Through relationships in the linked data concepts, we can provide more complex answers such as "Give me all the images of living, newsworthy people, born in Liverpool who are involved in politics".
