NewsReader will process news in 4 different languages when it comes in. It will extract what happened to whom, when and where, removing duplication, complementing information, registering inconsistencies and keeping track of the original sources. Any new information is integrated with the past, distinguishing the new from the old in an unfolding story line, similar to how people tend to remember the past and access knowledge and information.
So the idea seems to be that this service will trawl news wires, extract the facts, and pull them together in some sort of narrative based on published reports…?
