Google on Thursday declared its experimental Pinterest-like application called ‘Keen’ that will permit clients to gather, save searches, and follow subjects that intrigue them.
The new test ‘Keen’ has been created as a feature of Area 120, Google’s workshop for test ventures, in a close joint effort with a group at Google called People and AI Research (PAIR), which is devoted to human-centered machine learning systems.
Keen, which is a web and Android application, let the clients make their form of Pinterest’s board.
“On Keen, you say what you want to spend more time on, and then curate content from the web and people you trust to help make that happen,” composed CJ Adams, Co-founder of Keen in a blog entry.
“You make a “keen,” which can be about any topic, whether it’s baking delicious bread at home, getting into birding, or researching typography. Keen lets you curate the content you love, share your collection with others, and find new content based on what you have saved.”
Clients can include links, photographs, and different assets, invite friends to team up and follow “Keens” they find intriguing.
You can curate for yourself or others. You can utilize Keen to create a collection of your best assets on a point you know well and share it with individuals who might make the most of your curation. The keens can be private or open, so you control what is shared and who can contribute.
“For every keen you create, we use Google Search and the latest in machine learning to remain on the lookout for helpful content related to your interests. The more you save to a keen and organize it, the better the recommendations become. Even if you’re not an expert on a topic, you can start curating a keen and save a few interesting “gems” or links that you find helpful. These bits of content act like seeds and help keen discover more and more related content over time. You can also follow keens that others have created, discovering thousands of hand-curated lists from the community, and getting alerts when new things are added,” Adams said.
“Keen isn’t intended to be a place to spend endless hours browsing. Instead, it’s a home for your interests: a place to grow them, share them with loved ones, and find things that will help in making this precious life count,” he further added.
Keen is currently accessible on the Google Play Store and the web, which you can get to utilize a current Google account.
