Today’s blog post is a quick announcement of “personalization” feature in Polytopix. We added a new feature that allows users to add their (possibly multiple) twitter accounts in Polytopix. The user’s twitter stream is used to personalize and rank the news articles on Polytopix. More importantly, our semantic similarity algorithms will display contextual explanatory articles along-side the news articles in the user’s feed.
On popular demand, we added a new feature called “weekly news digest” in Polytopix. Our ranking algorithm picks the top (at most 10) news articles (along with the contextual explanatory articles) from the last one week and emails them every Friday midnight. I will post the details of our ranking algorithm in a future blog post.
