Moving Point Technology

Google’s internal incubator, Area 120, which focuses on experimental applications and services, recently launched Keen, an AI-based product. You can think of Keen as a potential competitor to Pinterest, which uses Google’s machine learning expertise to divide topics.


Co-founder CJ Adams stated that Keen's goal is to become a "focus" alternative to browsing waterfall content. With Keen, you can organize your favorite content, share favorites with others, and find new content based on the saved content.


With Google’s machine learning technology, "useful content relevant to your interests" will appear on Keen. Adams said, "Even if you are not an expert in a certain field, you can start to be keen to save some interesting or useful links to you. These contents are like seeds, and as time goes on, it helps to find more More and more relevant content."

Of course, given Google’s previous approach to innovative/experimental products, we do not rule out the possibility that the project will eventually be terminated.
