The team here at News360 has a lot of knowledge to share with the world – we’ve been doing semantic analysis in news media for the past 7 years – first, in Russian, and now, since about a year ago when we started News360, in English. The ride of the past year has been wild – almost from scratch, we’ve created a semantic analysis engine, and started aggregating more than 1,000 different news sources, extracting more than 700,000 different named entities (companies, people, locations, brands and so on) from every article and released three mobile apps on the iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone 7 to be the interface to this platform.
On this blog, our aim is to share our knowledge, technical and business experience, reach out to our users and other companies and keep track of our progress.
Most of the posts are going to be written by me, Roman Karachinsky, CBDO of News360, with occasional guest posts from other members of the team. We’ll try to keep an approximately once-a-week schedule, and see how it’ll go from there.
