Our goal is to empower readers to form their own opinions on breaking news stories, by providing a feed of facts without any partisan spin. Our proprietary technology facilitates factual understanding of things as they happen, leading to improved civil discourse and enabling users to form their own opinions around current events.
The problem today is not access to information, it’s reducing and verifying the overwhelming amount of available information: Distilling it down to the unvarnished facts in order to build it back up into intelligence that can be used by ordinary people to guide important decisions that impact their lives.
To do this, we couple AI technology, human oversight, and a rigorous methodology for intelligence gathering to deliver a neutral, computational intelligence platform that aggregates and disseminates facts from primary sources and presents verifiable knowledge about important events and social topics.
The Citable Process
Our system ingests news from a wide variety of standard sources across the spectrum, both locally and globally.
The Citable data engine parses out key topics and the facts underneath them, recognizing the who, what, when and where of current events.
Our analysis tools provide qualitative data and detect sentiment around overall topics and key persons, companies and concepts.
The results are presented, with full sources and references, in Citable’s web, email, and data feed formats for our subscribers.
Citable enables more intelligent discourse and is ushering in a new era of emerging media to replace the antiquated news distribution systems consumers engage with today.
Citable was founded by an experienced technology team in Austin, Texas. The genesis of the idea came from our founder’s experience engaging with the media in his youth. He grew up in a household that listened nightly to Walter Cronkite, “the most trusted man in America”, on the radio. He vividly remembers the inherent change when Cronkite retired and the new voice of the news switched to Dan Rather. News that was once presented in a way so that the listener did not know the political stance of the host they were listening to, was replaced by a new, explicitly partisan voice.
There are several parallels in today’s media society where it’s clear which party a news’ anchor is part of and the partisan division that comes with specific outlets. Inspired by Cronkite and the older standard of media presentation, Citable hopes to bring back an era where there are sources for information on current events that can be trusted from all sides of the political spectrum and presented in an impartial manner.
By ingesting data, and layering technology tools to curate, and separate opinion from facts, Citable is able to deliver updates on current events allowing the reader to decide where they stand on the subjects of the day.
