“Opera’s AI news engine uses real-time intelligence ranking, powered by machine learning (G.B.D.T. algorithm) and deep learning (D.N.N. deep neural network)”, the company mentioned on its blogpost.

The company further explained that once the user starts engaging with news content, it begins defining a unique user profile by accumulating news categories and publisher domains the user clicks on. The news engine then analyzes user’s interest through a deep learning model. “The more the user engages with the newsfeed, the more in-tune the content becomes for the user within the “For You” section”, it said.

It also includes feedback from local editor teams and the editorial team can monitor the AI generated news feed to identify and remove fake news as quickly as possible.

“The goal is to provide each user the ability to get their optimal content based on their interest, which is constantly evolving,” said Cuautemoc Weber, Head of Global Accounts & Content, Opera Software.

Apart from India, the Opera AI news engine has been rolled out in countries like Ghana, Kenya, Indonesia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and the United States.
