'NewsBot' is the name of a Google Chrome browser extension that makes it easy to discover related articles with just the click of a button.

There are three main ways that NewsBot provides value using machine learning technology. When an Internet user has finished reading a story, they are able to activate NewsBot in order to discover a related article from another site, perhaps with a different perspectives. For more hyper-targeted searching, NewsBot also allows its users to highlight a specific block of text in order to find even more accurate results.

Finally, NewsBot also helps users to stay informed on particular topics of interest with a 'Follow Story' button. Once a new story is published from a particular topic, an email is set to the NewsBot user to read at their leisure.
