Broad business and tech publications produce hundreds of articles per week. Not all those articles are relevant to the topics, companies, or products you care about. Manually filtering out the noise can be overwhelming and time-consuming.
Relevance is a problem we are very passionate about. We have spent the last two years designing and building Leo, your AI research assistant to help declutter your feeds and save time.
Unlike opaque recommendation engines, Leo has a set of skills that let you define and control what is relevant to you.
We are excited to show you how the Leo Topic skill lets you track specific topics, companies, and keywords in your feeds.
Let’s get started!
Companies, people, and products
Leo knows about all the companies, people, and products listed in Wikipedia and in the news. You can ask Leo to look for any of those named entities (and their known aliases) and prioritize articles that are a match.
You can, for example, look for mentions of your competitors or prospects in your industry or tech feeds.
Leo understands how to recognize articles about hundreds of “smart” topics (like artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, blockchain, energy, health, etc..). He’ll be looking for thousands of different terms related to that smart topic. We designed smart topics because an article can be about artificial intelligence without including the term “artificial intelligence”.
We continuously teach Leo new smart topics. If there is a specific topic you would like to sponsor, please email email@example.com
You can also ask Leo to look for exact matches of a keyword you are interested in. In this mode, Leo behaves like a saved search.
Refine with AND and OR
You can design more sophisticated priorities by combining multiple topics using AND and OR. AND means that both of the topics need to be present. OR means that either of the topics needs to be present.
Combine with other skills
The topic skill can be composed with all the other Leo skills allowing you, for example, to easily prioritize articles that reference a product launch (business event skill) while also being related to #artificial intelligence (topic skill)
Or high severity software vulnerabilities (cybersecurity skill) related to docker (topic skill)
You can use the Leo “less like this” down arrow to correct Leo when a topic detection is incorrect. This feedback is channeled to the Feedly ML Team and to the datasets used to train Leo, making topics increasingly more accurate and relevant over time.
