Project Emporia has been delivering personalized news to people on the Web and Windows Phone for over two years. During that time Project Emporia has been used by tens of thousands of people to cut through the overwhelming amount of information swirling around the Web, enabling them to find the stories most relevant and interesting to them.
We have learned a great deal about how to deliver personalized news from the activity and feedback of our users, and for that we are grateful. However, as a research project, Project Emporia has run its course and we have decided to terminate the service. We will now focus on how best to transition what we have learned into consumer facing products that benefit millions instead of thousands of users. We will also explore how we can evolve the field of personalized news even further through new experiences as well as social and machine assisted recommendations.
We would like to thank everybody who has used Project Emporia over the years, especially those that have taken the time to provide feedback on how to improve the service.
