About NewsRoom America

Newsroom America is a news start-up experimenting with "Big Data", or more specifically "Big News Data", to gain greater insights into the community we live in today and the world we will live in the future. Big News Data includes the hundreds of thousands of press releases issued every day in the United States, from the White House to the local council. This amount of data cannot be managed with simple, common software and so is by definition Big Data. Newsroom America combines old fashioned editorial standards with the goal of publishing all U.S. press releases online in real-time using our prototype AI software Cyclotron.
