Member Update: SAM - Using Our Real-Time Knowledge Engine to Alert on Earthquakes Faster Than Government Sources

Member company, SAM rolled out v2 of its product in beta a few weeks ago. After years of serving newsrooms with tools for social media workflow and verification, the team has collected an incredible wealth of knowledge on valuable real-time data. UGC (user generated content) has potential to transform so many industries, allowing people to better understand the world around them, make better business decisions, keep people safe, and tell stories that matter.  The team at SAM is committed to building tools that help their customers leverage the incredible power of millions of real-time data points. 

In this product update, Sean Solbak, CTO, shares insight into how their new knowledge engine can alert to natural disaster faster than government and news sources. SAM cuts through the clutter using proprietary AI algorithms that scan social media, understand what's being said, where it's being said, and, critically, the authenticity of who is saying it.
