Ber­lin-based Ret­res­co was announ­ced as a win­ner at the 2017 United Nati­ons World Sum­mit Awards (WSA) for digi­tal inno­va­ti­on. In front of UN rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ves, ICT minis­tries and the pri­va­te sec­tor Ret­res­co will recei­ve its award in the Busi­ness & Com­mer­ce” cate­go­ry at the World Sum­mit Glo­bal Con­gress in Vien­na.

Ret­res­co was reco­gnis­ed in the “Busi­ness & Com­mer­ce” cate­go­ry, high­lighting the fol­lo­wing fea­tures:

  • rtr tex­ten­gi­ne, a Natu­ral Lan­guage Gene­ra­ti­on (NLG) ser­vice that extracts com­plex sources to pro­du­ce natu­ral­ly wor­ded pro­se
  • Topic Manage­ment Sys­tem (TMS), a dyna­mic seman­tic app­li­ca­ti­on and con­tent cura­ti­on sys­tem


rtr tex­ten­gi­ne is a Natu­ral Lan­guage Gene­ra­ti­on plat­form, desi­gned for non-deve­l­o­pers. This makes it easy to sca­le data-dri­ven con­tent such as manage­ment reports, pro­duct descrip­ti­ons and edi­to­ri­als. Arti­fi­ci­al Intel­li­gence (AI) auto­ma­tes the pro­cess of crea­ting con­tent that fol­lows a publisher’s style and tone of voice. Now, edi­to­ri­al teams, e-com­mer­ce workers and agen­ci­es can enhan­ce editing pro­ces­ses for data-hea­vy arti­cles.

The TMS, acro­nym for Topic Manage­ment Sys­tem, is a dyna­mic con­tent cura­ti­on and recom­men­da­ti­on soft­ware by Ret­res­co. Publishers are empowe­r­ed to deli­ver con­tent that is custo­mi­sed by reader pre­fe­rence, moving away from tra­di­tio­nal news­pa­per ter­mi­no­lo­gy. Publishers can now attract more search traf­fic by adap­t­ing to cur­rent con­tent trends. Readers are more enga­ged too, reflec­ted by an increa­se in rec­en­cy, fre­quen­cy, and volu­me of digi­tal news con­sump­ti­on.

Now in its fif­te­enth year, the WSA selects and pro­mo­tes the world’s best digi­tal and most inno­va­ti­ve app­li­ca­ti­ons with trans­for­ma­ti­ve impact on socie­ty. It is orga­nis­ed by the United Nati­ons’ World Sum­mit on the Infor­ma­ti­on Socie­ty (WSIS). In 2017, the jury had to choo­se from almost 400 sub­mis­si­ons and selec­ted 40 WSA win­ners.
