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’s web app homepage, there is a section called ‘Trending News’, featuring headlines of articles from the Top 10 most widely reported topics across 50+ sources

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.   

More AI-driven content suggestions at ScoutAsia

At the bottom of each article page, you will find a section titled “Recommended”. This section visualises another representation of our AI-driven content suggestion capabilities.   

The recommended articles are currently selected based on similarities with the displayed article. These recommendations could be similar in terms of the topic and/or entities mentioned. It is intended to help users easily find more stories that they may be interested in.  

The snapshot here illustrates article suggestions for an article related to the G7 agreement on their new infrastructure plan.
