Meet Leo, Your AI Research Assistant

Goodbye Information Overload

Keeping up with topics and trends you care about within a sea of articles can be overwhelming and time-consuming.

Filtering out the noise so you can focus on what really matters is a challenge we are deeply passionate about.

Today, we are delighted to announce Leo, your AI research assistant.


How Does Leo Work?

We have been teaching Leo how to read and analyze information so that he can declutter your feeds. With Leo, instead of spending hours going through hundreds of articles every day, you can free your mind, focus on what matters, and save time.

Ask Leo to read your feeds and filter out the noise

Unlike opaque algorithms, Leo gives you total control over your feeds. Leo has a set of skills that help him understand the world and enable you to define what is relevant to you.

Leo allows you to prioritize topics, trends, and keywords of choice; deduplicate repetitive news; mute irrelevant information; summarize articles, and so much more. 

Leo’s skills let him read and analyze articles

The Topic skill lets you prioritize specific keywords, mentions, topics, and trends.

The Like-Board skill lets you train Leo by example. If you have curated over the time a board of specific topics or trends, you can ask Leo to read that board, understand what you are interested in, and prioritize future articles he thinks you’re likely to save to that board.

The Business Event skill lets you track industry activities such as funding events, partnerships announcements, product launches, leadership change, etc.

Leo is much more sophisticated than a simple news filtering tool. It’s a true AI that uses machine learning and NLP to filter out the noise.Jon Henshaw (Lead SEO Analyst – CBS Interactive)

See Leo in Action

Imagine that you follow a broad business feed connected to many sources with thousands of new articles per month.

You can ask Leo to read all the articles and prioritize the most insightful ones in the new Priority Tab.

With Leo, you are in control of the priorities.

Let’s imagine you are interested in the autonomous car trend. With just a few clicks, you can train Leo on this new priority:

Ask Leo to prioritize articles about autonomous cars

Once trained, Leo continuously reads all articles in your feed and prioritizes the ones mentioning autonomous cars.

Articles prioritized by Leo have a green priority label, which gives you a clear understanding of why the article was prioritized. You can then take further actions such as Refine Priority, Pause or Remove that priority.

Each prioritized article has a label and an explanation

Leo is smart! He continuously learns from your feedback:

When you save an article to a board, Leo considers that action a positive signal that reinforces Leo’s learning.

When Leo is wrong, you can use the “Less Like This” down arrow button to correct Leo and refine future recommendations.
