Colmunistos Bot is a computer program that runs through the editorial section of Paraguayan media websites.
It collects all the articles published only in those sections and builds a database. The program tries to identify which articles are written by women and which by men. When he cannot differentiate, because the name is neutral or for some other reason, he sends a message to someone from TEDIC who “gives him a hand” to decide. The bot was developed by Econom√≠a Feminista, an argentinian organization. TEDIC programmers were in charge of adapting it to work with the Paraguayan media.
