artificial sensemaking

technologists are refining software that teaches computers the meaning behind words.

here’s why i’m interested: apply this to a stream of information flowing in from a massive network of sources each in their own special way trying to tell you “what’s new,” and the prospects for spotting emerging issues, trends, etc. seem pretty interesting.

may try to visit powerset, an sf company that specializes in this sort of software (and was recently acquired by microsoft).
