This week, we had the pleasure of hosting an online talk with the team from Agolo, an NYC-based startup with a great product that automatically summarizes articles (and can even generate new titles for a group of summarized articles).
During the event, we discussed:
- why summarization has suddenly become interesting
- how different industries are applying the technology
- how algorithms work (LDA, word2vec, and recurrent neural networks)
- related applications (realtime translation, speech recognition)
- what’s next in the field
Check out the recording below!
If you’re interested in this topic, our Summarization report explores the technical details discussed during the event in much greater depth. The report explains the algorithms we used to build Brief, a prototype that summarizes articles. Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more!

by — We’ve started work on our next prototype. While the design is still evolving, we’re pretty sure one element of it will be a visualization of tens of thousands of data points, clustered through a dimensional reduction algorithm (most likely using T-SNE). For the past week I’ve been exploring how to render that many points in the browser and I wanted to document some early lessons in this post, s...
