RASP: How the AWS Cloud & Machine Learning streamline editorial processes

The Ringier Axel Springer Polska (RASP) publishing company, which operates one of Poland’s most popular news websites, wanted to make it easier for their editors to publish online articles. To realise this goal, AWS recommended they work with PGS Software to build an intelligent image recognition tool.

Business Benefits

The image recognition prototype was able to highlight just how quickly even the most technologically advanced applications can be developed on the AWS Cloud.

Moreover, the prototype’s efficient implementation helped RASP realise that integrating the image recognition module with their editorial system was the answer they were looking for, as it:

  • recognises thousands of objects
  • accurately analyses detailed image attributes
  • easily manages Polish-language content
  • was realised in just 4 weeks
  • streamlined the entire editorial process
  • Business Need

    RASP is one of the largest media companies in Europe who publishes thousands of online articles on a daily basis. Unfortunately, however, their existing image search and upload tools were slowing down RASP Polska’s editorial process.

    That’s when they came up with the idea to build a Cloud-hosted image recognition tool based on Machine Learning algorithms to help streamline their workflow.

    By developing the image recognition prototype for RASP, PGS Software confirmed their efficiency and experience in creating Cloud-native applications. The project was delivered on time, and its quality met our high expectations. The PGS team prepared an extension of the Machine Learning module, expanding AWS’ standard image recognition capabilities. We appreciated their Scrum work approach, reliable documentation, high commitment at every stage of the project, and great communication. The efficient implementation of the prototype has helped us confirm that we do indeed need to integrate the image recognition module with our editorial systems.
