Seekr Launches Updated Website, Streamlining User Experience

Seekr, a leading artificial intelligence company specializing in transparent content evaluation, today released a new user interface – streamlining the user experience and creating a transparent and uniform way to filter information.

Misinformation has exploded online, making it increasingly difficult to distinguish falsehoods from facts while deepening divisions in politics and broader culture. In fact, 53% of Americans are worried about unknowingly spreading misinformation while only 7% have a "great deal" of trust in the media.

"Content moderation is not uniform, resulting in a patchwork system where each major technology company creates their own standards and conventions," said Seekr founder and chief executive Pat Condo. "At Seekr, we are restoring trust in the media by using AI to fight AI-generated fake and misleading content. These new functionality updates will only improve the user experience and help protect consumers from an ever-increasing tide of misinformation."

With new technologies dramatically exacerbating the spread of problematic content, Seekr is continuously evaluating its algorithms and interface to improve the user experience and ensure consumers have the necessary tools to make informed decisions about information consumed online. Specifically, Seekr's latest updates include:

Seekr Score Interface & Usability

  • Reliability By Level: The Seekr score is sorted into five easily recognizable levels of reliability from very low to high – helping to offer perspective at a glance.
  • Scoring Precision & Rigor: The proprietary Seekr Score to rate articles has now been expanded to a 100-point scale to add further specificity for users to see the differences in reliability.
  • Color Combined With Clear Text: Score levels from very low to very high are also signified by color – from orange to teal – which is now visible on the scored search results for quick scanning and processing.

Customizable News Search & Discovery

  • Filters: In order to further enhance the user experience and ensure user choice, freedom, and accessibility, filters have been positioned front and center to allow for the quick customization of the search experience.
  • News Search: The Seekr search bar now defaults to a news search, with filters built into this feature that enhance speed, ease, and user control.
  • Coverage Comparison: The top news stories surrounding the same coverage from different news websites are featured in groupings of three to offer differing perspectives and further comparison capabilities.

Prophecy Launches Generative AI Platform, Powering AI Applications on Enterprise Data

Businesswire | June 26, 2023

Prophecy, the low-code data transformation platform, today announced two new product offerings: Prophecy Generative AI Platform and Prophecy Data Copilot. The new Prophecy Generative AI Platform provides a simple way for organizations to power generative AI applications using privately-owned, enterprise data. This new offering leverages Prophecy's flagship product, the low-code data transformation platform. In addition, Prophecy is also announcing the launch of the Prophecy Data Copilot, an AI assistant that automatically creates data pipelines based on natural language prompts, and improves pipeline quality with greater test coverage. “We are seeing tremendous results from building applications that combine enterprise data with off-the-shelf LLM models. Our belief is that for the vast majority of enterprise use cases, the era of hiring machine learning engineers who train proprietary models, or specialized LLMs is over,” shared Prophecy Co-Founder and CEO, Raj Bains. “Now all you will need is a private knowledge warehouse that provides private context along with questions and the LLMs give very relevant answers. With Prophecy’s new platform release, a data or application engineer can build an application like a support-bot on private data in a week”. Generative AI technology is becoming mainstream, with nearly all businesses looking to adopt and implement this technology into their existing workflows. But today's generative AI applications are trained against public data, limiting their usefulness when it comes to answering questions that are specific to an organization. The Prophecy Generative AI Platform democratizes AI for technical and non-technical teams by: Putting the power of generative AI against enterprise data in the hands of every user in every organization Speeding up the development of generative AI applications against enterprise data Supporting nearly unlimited use cases by leveraging the full breadth of enterprise data “We see generative AI based copilots making low-code the default way to build applications and data pipelines in enterprises,” shared Prophecy Co-Founder, Maciej Szpakowski. “We already see a 30-40% productivity boost from low-code adoption in our customer base, that coupled with another 30-40% from copilots will make starting with code financially untenable for the majority of enterprise use cases. The future of enterprise development is definitely copilot powered low-code, and we’re excited to see our customers get this boost as they adopt Prophecy Data Copilot.” Prophecy Data Copilot assists and automates numerous data-related tasks. Data Copilot: Democratizes the creation and delivery of data products. Data products are underpinned by data transformations. With Copilot, users can describe transformations using natural language. Copilot then converts these natural language prompts into Prophecy visual components and transformation logic, along with corresponding code. Improves efficiency and quality of pipeline creation. Copilot suggests data tests, enabling greater test coverage and increasing confidence in data. Copilot also suggests what transformations to use next, minimizing errors when joining, filtering, and aggregating data. Prevents data misuse. Copilot automatically generates descriptions for data pipelines and datasets. This includes, for example, an explanation of how a column was computed. “Generative AI and LLMs have become mainstream practically overnight and the hype is warranted,” shared SanjMo Principal, Sanjeev Mohan. “However, today’s applications, such as ChatGPT, artificially constrain the usefulness to data that is available in the public domain. The next frontier is applying this power technology to privately-held, enterprise data, something I didn’t think would happen till years from now. These new solutions from Prophecy will enable teams to use their data to move the needle in significant ways.” With the launch and platform updates, Prophecy further democratizes data transformation, boosting productivity and empowering non-technical users to access and leverage data in their everyday workflows.

SmartBear Launches Integrated API Developer Suite, Adding Portal and Exploration to SwaggerHub Platform

Businesswire | August 04, 2023

SmartBear, a leading provider of software development and visibility tools, released SwaggerHub Portal, SwaggerHub’s new feature to customize consumer-facing documentation that drives the adoption of APIs. The developer-centric tool allows API providers to create customizable landing pages, providing consumers with comprehensive resources for easy implementation. Portal is integrated with SwaggerHub, the popular API design and documentation tool, and Explore, the API client that supports REST and event-driven specifications, allowing teams of any size to explore, design, test, and document all in one place for a better developer experience. “SmartBear is focused on API-first development, helping developers to solve their challenges when it comes to design, documentation, testing, and adoption,” said Sean Butler, Vice President of Product Management at SmartBear. “With a growing number of APIs available, providers need help with discoverability and onboarding. To address this challenge, we are excited to launch these two innovative milestones – SwaggerHub Portal and its integration with SwaggerHub Explore – as we advance toward the SmartBear API Developer Lifecycle platform to deliver the best developer experiences in the industry.” According to Slashdata, more than 90% of developers use APIs regularly with 69% using third-party APIs, though discoverability is critical for consumers to successfully implement APIs into their projects. SwaggerHub Portal provides increased visibility and adoption and allows providers to seamlessly onboard their consumers for an improved customer experience. SwaggerHub's integration with Portal allows developers to generate documentation from their API designs with zero context switching. This minimizes time to market, making their APIs easy to discover and adopt. Development teams, whether code-first, design-first, or hybrid, can generate documentation from Explore, no longer needing to start from scratch when documenting. A senior tech and developer experience lead at Webio stated, “SwaggerHub Portal’s capabilities are promising to be a game changer for our onboarding process and developer experience. The use of the product concept to describe different parts of our system, combined with seamless integration with other SwaggerHub products, means that developers have a one-stop shop to get all the latest API information alongside visually appealing up-to-date documentation.” About SmartBear SmartBear provides a portfolio of trusted tools that give software development teams around the world visibility into end-to-end quality through test management and automation, API development lifecycle, and application stability, ensuring each software release is better than the last.
