QWIKI.com is a swanky newish website which searches millions of topics on the internet and creates a summarized multimedia presentation from the search results.
Or more simply put: a talking search engine which is especially useful for location-based content. It is pretty cool too.
The new platform automatically starts reading information from the selected websites and automatically ‘grabs’ photos of the chosen topic.
The co-founders of the website are Doug Imbruce and Altavista search engine founder, Louis Monier who started it in January 2011. “The mission of Qwiki is to advance information to the point where it feels human” said Imbruce.
“Qwiki provides a consolidated, narrated experience created entirely by machine,” he said.
“The goal is to help build a future where information comes alive,” said Monier. Have a go, type in your hometown, favourite place, or actor into the search bar at www.qwiki.com.
Last April they launched an iPad app which by June it had already reached over 500,000 downloads.
