Summarize anything.

Clipped uses NLP to summarize news articles into bullets and infographics. I built it during sophomore year to help w/ debate.
@tanay_tandon super cool! a few quick q's - 1) can you explain a bit more about NLP and how it works in this context? 2) How did it help w/ debate? 3) is this a side project or a business? how would you monetize?
@eriktorenberg Sure! The NLP uses pattern-learning. Essentially the algorithm has been trained to recognize certain grammatical patterns that are indicative of information concentration, and extracts portions of those phrases. This was really helpful for reading long evidence files in debate, and scanning them for major points. In terms of the business, I'm currently working with a few publishers to integrate the technology! Also looking into interesting ways to use the API with devs.
