ABOUT US

INFORMING THE WORLD

OUR MISSION

To improve the quality of information people consume.

If people consume bad content, they are more likely to take bad actions. So the best way to improve the
world is by helping everyone around us consume higher-quality information.

AI models that filter junk out

20 cutting-edge models, with source code and datasets open to the public. Full transparency and no hidden biases. Effective detection (and filtering) of misinformation, disinformation, propaganda, and plain ol’ junk.

Slick user interface

If users are interested in the topic of an article, they can swipe right (and they will see more articles on this topic over time). If users find the topic uninteresting, they can swipe left (and they will see fewer articles on that topic). If users prefer to listen rather than read, they can simply open "Listen mode" and start hands-free listening to the news.

Complete control over your feed

Our users have complete control over sources, categories, and the number of articles in each category. They can enable and disable publications as they see fit. Users can observe how we have customized the feed according to their preferences and manually adjust every aspect of it. There are no black boxes - they are in control.

A nutrition label for each news item

Our food comes with nutrition labels, so shouldn't our news have them too? Well, now it does. Every article comes with a detailed nutrition label that helps users decide whether something is worth consuming before they consume it.

A bullet-point summary for
each news item

By reading a few short bullet points instead of long blocks of text, users are able to save time and effort. The majority of articles do not require a length of 8000 words. We provide concise summaries consisting of a few sentences, followed by a link to the original source.

Hands-free news reading

Users can use voice commands to control our apps and ask to listen to news articles instead of reading them. All the slick interface features described above, such as swipes and customizations, can be done hands-free!

OUR CULTURE

We follow 7 basic tenets that are at the core of everything we do:

    Open discussion
    Truthful Communication
    Competence and Meritocracy
    Single-Minded Focus
    Celebrating Adversity
    Amazing Customer Experience
    A Bias Towards Finishing

A Bias Towards Finishing

The end-phase of a project tends to be messy, tedious, boring even. You might feel an urge to switch to some other, more entertaining project where you can ideate again. Resist this urge.

Focus on getting things done. Finished. Completed. Shipped. Profitable.

This is the standard by which we'll all get measured at the end.

Open discussion

We value brainstorming, questioning our premises, and challenging mental inertia at every step.

There are stupid ideas - and you should absolutely voice them.

There are stupid questions - and you should absolutely ask them.

Don’t filter yourself; speak up!

Truthful Communication

Truth is a process, not a set of facts. The way you hold your course true is by communicating with your colleagues in a complete and disinhibited way.

If you say what you think is right and turn out to be wrong - you’re being truthful; if you avoid saying what you think is right - you’re engaging in deception.

To make decisions using the best information available, we must maximize the speed of truth throughout the company.
