UK company Muscat is launching a personal news service in association with Reuters, called Reuters Business Briefing News Explorer. The new service, which provides customised information and news alerts via a company intranet will be launched tomorrow, at the Online Information Show.
News Explorer will deliver news in accordance with the users demands.
Once a form has been filled out giving the Muscat engine the criteria needed, it will deliver news to the desktop "as it happens" from the Reuters Global News Gathering Service.
News that is gathered is grouped into relevance ranks, using probabilistic retrieval algorithms and statistical techniques to give the user accurately rated text. Muscat asks the user to suggest keywords to retrieve primary and additional documents. This extra data allows the engine to retrieve the user's most important document first and arrange additional text in a user-controlled manner.
Muscatfx, Muscat's latest search engine and indexer is now available for either a single server (Local Site Indexer) or on several remote servers (Multisite Indexer). There is also an Enterprise Solution for Intranets that uses Muscat's Ferret Web crawling technology.
Reuters Global News covers over 2,000 news sources including national and international newspapers, trade publications and news wires.
