Taking Up “Arms” Against COVID

Editor: Christopher Brennan
After months of waiting and approaching a full year of COVID spread, vaccines have finally been injected into arms in places such as the UK and US. The coming days may bring more good news, with potential approval in Europe and a second vaccine slated to get the green light in the States. With a flood of articles this week, we set the Deepnews Scoring Model to look for in-depth articles from the last couple days on all the angles. Here are the results.

Let’s Play Monopoly? #97

Editor: Christopher Brennan
In blockbuster lawsuits, U.S. authorities and many states are now suing Facebook under antitrust law, raising the idea that it could be broken up into separate businesses. The move comes after months of expectation and other anti-monopoly action against Silicon Valley giants such as Google, though the issue of antitrust affects areas far beyond tech. This week’s Digest explores all the angles from all over the world, all gathered with the Deepnews Scoring Model.

All Eyes on Iran #96

Following the killing of Qasem Soleimani in January, this last week saw the assassination of another Iranian official, nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. Iran’s leaders have vowed revenge for an action that complicates an already tangled web of relations in the Middle East. There are angles involving Europe and the U.S. as well, which all showed up as we set the Deepnews Scoring Model to look for quality, in-depth articles about everything related to Iran.

Puzzling Out Pandemic Travel #95

It probably isn’t circled on your calendar, but the end of this week marks the halfway point between Singles’ Day, the biggest global shopping event of the year, and Black Friday, when a sea of shoppers normally surges into stores looking for sales. But what do these days mean (for businesses, for customers, for workers) when pandemic lockdowns in much of the world have sent the transition to online shopping into overdrive? It’s a good subject for a little depth, and this week the Digest pulls in recent articles from around the world on e-commerce, all gathered with the Deepnews Scoring Model.

We’re All (Browser) Window Shopping Now #94

It probably isn’t circled on your calendar, but the end of this week marks the halfway point between Singles’ Day, the biggest global shopping event of the year, and Black Friday, when a sea of shoppers normally surges into stores looking for sales. But what do these days mean (for businesses, for customers, for workers) when pandemic lockdowns in much of the world have sent the transition to online shopping into overdrive? It’s a good subject for a little depth, and this week the Digest pulls in recent articles from around the world on e-commerce, all gathered with the Deepnews Scoring Model.

A “Shot” at Ending the Pandemic? #93

Editor: Christopher Brennan
With cases soaring in many countries in recent weeks, the world received what appeared to be a jab of good news with the announcement of 90% effectiveness in trials of the vaccine developed by American pharma giant Pfizer and German BioNTech. The results are welcome, though what happens now, including more trials and issues of distribution, is more complicated. That makes vaccines a good subject for this week’s Digest, which gathered quality, in-depth articles from around the world on issues such as ultra-cold storage, “science by press release” and more.

What Do the Elections Tell U.S.? #92

Editor: Christopher Brennan
The votes are cast, and all that remains is the final counting in key states. As of the sending of this Digest, Joe Biden’s supporters anticipate him reaching the 270 electoral votes needed to become the next president. Beyond the top headline, however, there are the more nuanced stories that brought us to this point, from which demographics showed up to the reliability of polls, legal challenges and more. While pieces in last week’s Digest projected what would happen, this week uses the power of Deepnews.ai’s technology to look back at what we can learn from the results we know thus far.

Vote Gets Out Early #91

Editor: Christopher Brennan
After an election cycle that stretched for years, early voting in the 2020 U.S. elections has already begun and by next week all votes will be cast. While there is no shortage of coverage vying for your eyeballs, I thought it was a good use of Deepnews.ai’s technology to search for in-depth, quality stories on the subject for this week’s Digest and unearth articles you might not see scrolling through social media. Below are the results, a mixture of reporting from Las Vegas to Long Island, from long-established outlets to local papers to upstarts with a new way of looking at things. All gathered with the Deepnews Scoring Model.

Cut to the Quibi #90

Editor: Christopher Brennan
The “Streaming Wars” have claimed their first casualty. This week saw Quibi, the “quick bites” streaming service, announce it was ending after only six months. Beyond learning from the company’s failures, it’s also a good chance to take a look at what we’ll be looking at on our TVs and phones in the years to come as different platforms jockey for position. Though some of them take longer than a Quibi show to read, for this week’s Digest I thought it was a good use of the algorithm to set it looking for quality articles on streaming from around the world.

Thai Protesters vs. King #89

Editor: Christopher Brennan
Tens of thousands of protesters have spilled out into the streets of Bangkok as they demand reforms to the monarchy under King Maha Vajiralongkorn, thought to be the world’s richest royal and sometimes called the “playboy king.” While it may have been the subject of one article in your outlet of choice, I thought it was a good use of Deepnews.ai’s technology to bring together the most in-depth pieces in one place. Here is a Digest on the protests, the crackdown, and an unexpected connection to Europe. All found with the Deepnews Scoring Model.
