“News360 is Changing the Content Delivery Game” – Robert Scoble
News360 is a next generation news delivery platform that is changing the way people discover, consume and interpret up-to-the-minute news from the world around them. Available for all popular mobile platforms, and the web, News360 uses advanced semantic analysis to understand what every piece of content is really about, and to deliver it to the right user. By analyzing a person’s activity on the web with the same in-house natural language processing tools we use for content, News360 can identify more than a million different features to build a unique interest graph for that individual, and use it to filter the overwhelming flow of new information that she has to deal with, to a more manageable trickle, while preserving objectivity and giving her all points of view.
All the mobile products News360 has released were featured as recommended apps on their respective app stores, and the apps enjoy unrivaled popularity with hundreds of thousands of users that use them every day, with user growth accelerating rapidly.
The company, founded in July 2010, is well-funded, and is comprised of a young, diverse team of 30 engineers, linguists and designers, split between Moscow, Russia and the Silicon Valley.
