Mία πραγματικά καινοτόμα εφαρμογή που δημιουργεί περιλήψεις των ειδήσεων από πολλές πηγές σε ένα ενιαίο κείμενο! Πρόκειται για ένα ευφυές κολάζ από όλες τις διαφορετικές πληροφορίες που θα είχατε αν διαβάζατε όλα τα άρθρα, από όλες τις πηγές (αν και όταν θα είχατε το χρόνο!).

Αξιοποιεί κορυφαία τεχνολογία τεχνητής νοημοσύνης για να κάνει σύνοψη πληροφοριών, ξεχωρίζοντας τα πράγματα που διαφέρουν από τον πλεονασμό. Και όλα αυτά με τον πιο φιλικό, δοκιμασμένο και αποτελεσματικό τρόπο.
