OverviewIntwition analyzes internet chatter to detect breaking news stories and the topics that people are truly interested in.
Intwition’s AimAfter the ground stopped shaking in China, people started talking. They started calling their friends, they started texting their family, they started posting messages online. After 7 minutes, the first message appeared on Twitter, after 8 minutes local Beijing news agencies started reporting an earthquake. And after 10 minutes, the story was on Intwition’s demo homepage. Intwition is an algorithm that monitors internet chatter to detect waves of discussion and deliver the content related to it. News is being reported by deeply embedded reporters, all over the world, and at every given moment. These reporters are called “people”. And they are the reporters on the scene - anytime and everywhere. By listening to them, we can find stories as they happen and show what topics people truly care about. This is what the new version of Intwition aims to do.
On an Ordinary DayEven on an ordinary day, when major events aren’t happening, Intwition is still useful. The stories that appear on Intwition’s homepage are the stories actively being discussed on the internet right at that moment which means these stories are indicative of what topics people really care about from the news that day. Rather than relying on user’s to submit stories and then manually vote up those stories, Intwition simply looks at what people are talking about. In an essence, to vote for a story, all you have to do is talk about it on the Internet. This method proves to be faster to deliver content than some previous social news models.
