Entrepreneur looking to break bubble
A BUDDING entrepreneur is looking to break through the so called echo chamber effect where online users only hear and spread opinions they agree with by using artificial intelligence.
Lyric Jain, an MIT and Cambridge University student, has founded Brighouse-based LogicAlly.
Mr Jain says that when launched the service will eliminate fake news from its users’ screens.
“What we have online today is an artificially engineered serendipity where virtually every piece of information a user consumes fits into their own pre-existing narratives,” he said.
“My aim for LogicAlly is to remove these barriers and give those who want it the opportunity to see the big picture for themselves.”
Mr Jain is aiming to launch the platform in early 2018.
The business has ten experienced developers, all of whom are currently working from the company’s headquarters to develop the platform’s user interfaces and finalise the coding.
