Google launching overhauled Google News
MANILA, Philippines – At the Google I/O 2018 keynote on Tuesday, May 8 (May 9, Manila time), the company showed off how its overhauled Google News aims to add artificial intelligence to your daily news cycle.
An artificial intelligence selects and curates the millions of articles, comments, and podcasts on the web to create a short briefing of key things you need to know for the day, and pulls information and events from a person's local area.
The new Google News not only personalizes itself for your use, it also learns more a user takes advantage of it, in a system called reinforcement learning.
Google News has a couple of different tabs you can visit. Headlines will let readers see the trending topics worldwide. Newscasts provide a sort of quick preview of a story to let you decide whether you actually want to dive into it.
Meanwhile, Full Coverage pulls from different publications and arranges stories in a timeline to put all information in one place, with AI highlighting what’s important and information you might want to know.
Google News also has a service called Subscribe with Google, which makes it easier and faster to subscribe and support news companies you like using your Google account.
Meanwhile, if you want to expand beyond mobile newsreading, Google also makes all content accessible in whatever device you choose to use, based on your account.
Google will be rolling out over Android, iOS, and the web in 127 countries starting today, and will be available everywhere by next week. – Rappler.com
