Through the AP Metadata Services offering, the Associated Press is providing publishers with a standardized AP News Taxonomy, which in combination with the AP Tagging Service enables the automated creation of rich, semantic metadata. This metadata enables publishers to improve their connection with readers by increasing content relevance and generating new, targeted products and services, while also increasing editorial efficiencies. AP Metadata Services evolved out of AP’s successful implementation of standard taxonomy and tagging within AP’s content distribution pipeline.
