IPTC was looking for linguists to write classification rules for EXTRA https://iptc.github.io/extra/overview.html, an open source rules-based classification engine for news and found them now. The linguist will write Boolean rules to analyze the text of news articles and suggest the most relevant IPTC Media Topics (http://cv.iptc.org/newscodes/mediatopic), a news taxonomy of roughly 1,000 subjects. A portion of about 100 terms will be selected to have rules written by the linguist for this project.

This project phase runs from the end of March to the end of June 2017.
