Wikipedia is one of the most widely used websites globally. We built a simple extension to that displays similar pages at the top of every Wikipedia page!
Give me five is an open source Chrome extension that allows you to recommend the content you push to Lateral based on the content of the page you’re currently visiting. It’s the same code base that the NewsBot Chrome extension is built upon.
We recently wrote about what our NewsBot Chrome extension does today I’m going to add to that and explain how it works behind the scenes. When building this project we approached it as if we were a user of the Lateral API to see what we could build.
Computers consist of on/off switches and process meaningless symbols. So how is it that we can hope that computers might understand the meaning of words, products, actions and documents? If most of us consider machine learning to be magic, it is because we don’t yet have an answer to this question. Here, I’ll provide an answer in the context of machines learning the meaning of words. But as we’ll see, the approach is the same everywhere.
We are extremely excited to introduce you to NewsBot, the fastest way to find related articles and to stay up-to-date on the news that matters to you!
By ignoring citation graphs and keywords, you can discover papers and researchers you never knew existed. Check it out here (on arXiv papers = ML, CS, math & physics).
TED is an awesome platform for ideas, so we thought an interesting experiment would be having our API provide recommendations based on the talks’ transcripts.
