Type /1news & 1News is now ready for you!


While millions of news articles are published every day, I realized that relevancy and terseness was key. Identifying that this solution could be implemented by machine learning & pattern recognition led to the birth of 1News. Delivering news in its simplest form and fresh is what 1News aims for.
