Angled originated from, and is created for, users who have become irritated with biased news reporting.
The goal of Angled is to provide users with semantic and thematically related news articles based on the information they are already consuming.
- Multi-source news aggregation stack. Built on multiple services and open source software (Kimono, Rome, Jsoup, Guava) which contributed to the acquisition, availability, organization, and interpretation of news sources (CNN, NYT, and more to follow).
- Article clustering and categorization prototype system. Leveraged multiple data analysis engines (Semantria, and Rhine) for extracting semantic and thematic information as well as determining measures of similarity.
