Google company has launched a new service, the social network called Keen. In fact, it's the analog of Pinterest social service; the only difference is that Keen resorts to the use of artificial intellect. The company said so on their official blog.
"We worked in close collaboration with a team at Google called People and AI Research (PAIR), dedicated to human-centered machine learning systems, to develop this experiment", Google reported, referring to Keen as part of Area 120, Google’s workshop for experimental projects.
It is an artificial intelligence that seeks interesting content for users of Keen, based on his/her previous preferences.
"On Keen, which is a web and Android app, you say what you want to spend more time on, and then curate content from the web and people you trust to help make that happen. You make a “keen,” which can be about any topic, whether it’s baking delicious bread at home, getting into birding, or researching typography. Keen lets you curate the content you love, share your collection with others, and find new content based on what you have saved", reads the post.
The developers explain that Keen isn’t intended to be a place to spend endless hours browsing. Instead, it’s a home for your interests: a place to grow them, share them with loved ones, and find things that will help in making this precious life count.
