Michele Alessandrini: "The Atex AI Platform provides customers with the tools and support they need to confidently transition, from testing phases to full production.”

Over the last fifty years, forward-thinking newsrooms have made the transition to digital, ushering in an era of unprecedented innovation in journalism, says Atex.

Today, Artificial Intelligence is reshaping the boundaries of what is achievable, changing how we work and enabling us to achieve what seemed unattainable just a few months ago. Aiming to assist editorial teams in expanding their horizons and ambitions, Atex is unveiling its latest innovation: the Atex AI Platform. Designed with the needs of journalists and newsrooms in mind, Atex says the platform aims to simplify journalists' tasks by leveraging the power of AI-driven technologies to enhance their work.

"Lately, there have been major shifts in the industry," explains Michele Alessandrini, an expert in AI applied to journalism and Group CTO of Atex, "with prestigious publishers experimenting with the use of AI for editorial tasks. The Atex AI Platform provides customers with the tools and support they need to confidently transition, from testing phases to full production. Atex introduces a blend of advanced technology and expert know-how to the news and publishing industry, ensuring that Artificial Intelligence is seamlessly integrated in support of journalistic integrity and responsibility”.

Below are some of the key components of the Atex AI Platform:

  • Smart News
  • The goal of the Atex AI Platform is to guide newsrooms and journalists by offering AI-based IT solutions that simplify workflows, improve content accuracy, and personalize the reader experience.
  • Tailored and co-designed AI
  • The solutions of the Atex AI Platform cater to the individual and specific needs of each newsroom, says Atex, offering the possibility to extend native functions with the integration of external use cases. According to Atex, the AI Platform is not a separate new tool added to the software already owned by a newsroom, but rather a tool that integrates new use cases directly within the newsroom's products, for example through APIs.
  • Shared Intelligence
  • The platform collaborates with numerous partners to meet individual operational needs and, more importantly, to activate new synergies in the sector. Among Atex’s partners are: AWS, Anthropic, Babelscape, DeepL, Factiverse, OpenAI, and ReadSpeaker.
