Interesting beta ... applicable to an enterprise? perhaps ... "stay tuned":
News at Seven gives you the news you want, the way you want it. Each day, News at Seven automatically generates a virtual newscast pulled from stories, images, videos and blogs all linked by a common news topic. News at Seven presents news, point/counterpoint, opinion, celebrity gossip and the occasional foray into the world of 3D gaming. News at Seven isn't just the future, it's the future of the future.
About the Lab
News at Seven was developed at Northwestern University’s Intelligent Information Laboratory (InfoLab). The InfoLab’s mission is to bring users information relevant to the specific moment and task at hand. We construct systems that connect users with information, services, people, and community on the basis of the context of their in-the-moment activity. The InfoLab creates frictionless information technologies that proactively get people the right information, at the right time and in the right form.
About the People
Work on News at Seven is driven by Nate Nichols and Sara Owsley, Computer Science graduate students at Northwestern University’s Intelligent Information Laboratory (InfoLab). The work is directed by Kristian Hammond, Professor of Computer Science and Director of the InfoLab.
