Researchers at Stanford University's Brown Institute for Media Innovation have launched an interactive tool powered by artificial intelligence (AI) that enables the public to search cable TV news transcripts and compute the screen time of public figures.
The Stanford Cable TV News Analyzer boosts the transparency surrounding broadcasters' editorial decisions with modern AI techniques to automatically quantify who is on the news and the content of their speech.
The tool employs computer vision to analyze news coverage patterns. Transcripts are synchronized with video content and compared across dates, times of day, and programs.
Stanford's Maneesh Agrawala said, "By letting researchers, journalists, and the public quantitatively measure who and what is in the news, the tool can help identify biases and trends in cable TV news coverage."
