DescriptionA "complex news story" isn't just complicated to understand. Because it takes months or even years to pan out, the sheer volume of information out there makes the story daunting as well. We've built a tool that truncates an infinite news story into a finite (and very achievable) narrative. With 3 simple clicks, readers can select the complex news story they want to understand (e.g. Syrian Civil War, Black Lives Matter, etc.), they can decide how much time they want to spend on it (i.e. 3 minutes, 10 minutes, 60 minutes, etc.) and they can select a news source they trust for their pre-existing coverage of it. Our intelligent algorithm weighs relevance, structures and summarises the story for the user into an interactive timeline.
