Popego is an Internet company building AI technology and innovative interfaces to create a more personal web based on the concept of user-controlled interest profiles.
They envisioned a new dimension emerging over the social graph: Interests; and they have built a product capable of exploring this new dimension, modeling interests and synthesizing interest profiles for internet users based on all their online activity, extracting semantic information from their content and connections.
Based on these interest models, their users can filter the web for those gems that are relevant and interesting to them. Besides interesting recommendations, their users can also share their interest profiles to show the world what they like and find people with matching interests.
The team got together in early 2007 with the vision of creating a more meaningful web that can adapt its contents to each user’s interests, and a more credible web where you can discover the real people behind each username. A public beta will be launched in September.
