Noowit's intelligent publishing platform is the result of more than ten years of research and 4 years of development. What started in 2000 as Nikolaos Nanas PhD research on Immune Inspired Personalization had to mature for ten years, through various comparative experiments and research prototypes, to become ready for the real world.
Nikolaos and Chris joined forces in 2011 to wrap the former's Adaptive Information Filtering model into a real world web app for personalized news reading. The first prototype was released in private beta in may 2012 and its public beta version was announced on the 1st of July 2013 (the day Google Reader closed). Various updates and new features (including the ability for users to create personal magazines) were released since then, but... like with many news aggregators, the effort never took off. The decision was made to swith direction.
Christopher Varakliotis joins the founding team and the pivot towards an intelligent publishing platform targeting news publishers and content marketers is made. The first version of the platform was ready by September 2015 and the first publications in December of the same year. The interest on behalf of publishers is amazing. We continue to work hard to disrupt the online media world, with intelligent, online newspapers and magazines.
