Get a quick macro view of Trending News at ScoutAsia
Spending your whole morning absorbing all relevant news topics may sound time-consuming. Sometimes, you may even miss out on important global economic events. Often, you wish for something helpful, something meaningful or someone who is more than willing to create a summary view for you.
At ScoutAsia, we recently updated our web app homepage, fronting with ‘Trending News’, featuring headlines of articles from the Top 10 most widely reported topics across 50+ sources in ScoutAsia. Right after the Trending News section, showcasing another set of ‘My News’, a personalised set of updates from your saved searches & target list.
What’s in the ‘Trending News’
The idea of Trending News comes from the desire to know what’s breaking news, that many journalists are writing about.
Trending News is designed to bring you the latest article from each of the top 10 topics clusters that are:
- Covered in many articles,
- Covered in recent news, and
- By many news publishers
Our AI technology machine does this curation, with no human supervision involved. This allows the AI to be responsive to changing news trends even novel ones not seen before.
Once the top 10 topic clusters are selected, the most recent article from each topic cluster will appear on your ScoutAsia home screen.
Selected articles are arranged and sorted in chronological order. Articles listed at the top of the section may not necessarily be the most trending news circulating.
Your subscription plan may lead to different Trending News results. Suppose you have subscribed to ScoutAsia Japan, offering Japanese news & company data. In that case, the curated Trending News will only display articles from your subscribed news sources, Japanese news.
*By default, Exchange filings from the Singapore Exchange and the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong will not be part of the curation.
