WHAT DOES QUALITY MEAN?

The Overtone depth scale

Overtone depth scale

To us, quality is a measure of the value that has been added to an article by its author to inform their readers. This includes the following:

• Original reporting
• Good sourcing
• Exploration of ideas

AI IN ACTION

Overtone scores articles based on the text itself, not the prestige of the outlet or author that published it. Our algorithm has been trained to look for important parts of “journalistic quality” including original reporting, meaningful analysis and good sourcing.

OUR ALGORITHM

NOTE: Articles that receive lower scores are often not “bad” articles but simply don’t contain the amount of information or reporting that higher-scoring articles do. They can provide good, truthful coverage of something, but don’t add a lot more. Many articles receive a 1, 2 or 3.
