Kevin: Loud3r provides semantic filtering technology for news and information, and it already has some big clients including a hyperlocal project by the Chicago Tribune, ChicagoNow. The Loud3r teams asks two questions about filtering solutions: 1 Does the solution deliver a comprehensive view of the topic to the reader? A comprehensive view includes Tweets, Blog posts, News articles, Photos and Videos.
2 Does the solution effectively improve the signal-to-noise ratio of the reading experience?
One of the key observations that the Loud3r team makes is this: "There’s not very much unique content produced every day. I know that seems like heresy, but 90+% of the content is simply sharing, reposting and duplication."
