I like the idea of making news accessible, but it's dangerous to boil down complex events and issues into two sentences. A two sentence hook is one thing, but if the idea is to give an important news story in just two sentences, I can't get with it. We need more well-written, more in-depth explanations of what's going on, not fewer.

@jeff_osborn This is a two sentence hook, that's the point. It's a two sentence summary of the article, if it interests you then you click the link at the bottom of the summary and it directs you to the original, full article.

@christopher_hustman Got it. It's a headline aggregator. I like it - it makes catching up easy and is a little bit addictive (I just keep scrolling). Nice work!

May I ask if the news are automatically curated and summarized or it's manually updated by human?

@marcelc63 @cyril_nb It's still in an early prototype stage. I'm working on cleaning it up and getting it to a public usable point, when I get the API usable i'll release it for public use. Thanks for the interest!

Looks mostly extractive. Is this unsupervised?

@bluemonk482 yes, its in a prototype stage. It's a fully automated site, completely extractive, with no supervision as of now. There are duplicates sometimes and some summaries / titles become kinda hard to understand. It's a work in progress.

This is really cool! How are you accomplishing the summarization? Are you using something like Textbox to extract keyword frequency or something? https://machinebox.io/docs/textbox
