Brown, David C.
The Mindful Reader Project centers on the design and development of a machine learning-augmented newsfeed aggregation application. It seeks to reduce the time necessary for users to find interesting newsfeed articles, by building a user interest model from implicit and explicit article ratings and applying that model to rank incoming articles based on predicted user interest. The software was developed using code from the RSSOwl project; in tests, the user interest model grew more accurate with time.
