Google News uses Artificial Intelligence for Personalized News Feeds

Google will feed News based on User priorities.

Google I/O conference, 2018 has been a hit among both developers and users alike. It seems Google is going to mainstream in using artificial intelligence for their different products, including Google News.

Google has announced that they have completely overhauled how news will be delivered to their users, now they will be using AI and machine learning to understand user’s choices and priorities, based upon this information personalized news from different sources will be displayed at a single place.

They have introduced a new “For You” section in Google News, under this section they will show top five news that a user might be interested in. It will be a mix of local news, global events, and the news that a user has been following in the past.

From here a user can switch to whichever topic he/she is interested in, for example, if you choose Global headlines it will show main events in different niches from around the world, it will be a mix of different topics like politics, sports, technology, business, movies, etc.

If you choose local news, it will show different news breaking out around your area. If you have been following some news for some time, it will show further developments about that news.

If a user is interested in a particular story and wants to dig deeper, they can use Google News’ new feature “Full Coverage." Once a user clicks on full coverage, he/she will be presented with news reported from different places, mediums and formats, like social mentions, local forum discussions, top publishers, news platforms that you mostly visit or have subscribed to.

Google News will act in real time and gather news as they break through different channels and aggregate them at a single place. For Example, if you search for ‘London Blasts’, Google News will present you with the news headline followed by a timeline, key points and further developments in the topic.

At the bottom of the Google News, the user will find FAQs, tweets from trusted sources and fact-checks.

A lot of concerns have been raised about fake news, especially spread through social media channels, with ‘Fact-Checks’ feature, Google News seem to be working in that direction, and users can expect some major development of this feature in the coming future.

With Google News, users will now have unfiltered access to news that is collected from different sources.

Google Play Newsstand is now a part of Google News, with a new feature, ‘Subscribe with Google Platform’, users can subscribe to more than 1000 publishers (mobile friendly) that are available on the platform.

The new Google News is available for Android, iOS, and web starting today, by next week it will be available in 127 different countries around the world.
