What is Upsum trying to achieve?

We have a background in public service journalism in the UK, with many years working at the BBC among other places. We created Upsum because we realised that the existing media services do a pretty poor job of actually answering questions people might have about the news. We want to put that right - our ethos is to make facts about the news part of the fabric of the open web.
