BBC R&D Consultancy

This was a contract for the BBC over the course of two years, taking part from initial ideas phases through to developing and testing a series of prototypes and components.

We were looking at ways of automatically extracting editorial metadata (such as tone, language and topics) about web content, making it easier to find the right content for the right audience, prototyping ideas around curation, in the context of research on content discovery.

It involved workshops, rapid prototyping of components and data visualisation methods involving the latest in JavaScript technology and techniques (React, Node, ES6 and Docker container workflows).
