Opera has released a new version of its most popular mobile browser app, Opera Mini, for iPhone users. The revamped user interface features a news feed on its start page and helps users get the news four times faster than the previous version. An artificial intelligence (AI) news engine is also rolling out to selected countries, including India, bringing the latest and most insightful news to the user without any effort setting it up.

Opera’s AI news engine uses real-time intelligence ranking, powered by machine learning (G.B.D.T. algorithm) and deep learning (D.N.N. deep neural network). Once the user starts engaging with news content, it will begin defining a unique user profile by accumulating news categories and publisher domains the user clicks on.

The news engine analyzes the user’s interest through a deep learning model that understands what each user is engaged with. The more the user engages with the newsfeed, the more in-tune the content becomes for the user within the “For You” section.

AI-powered news feed 

The AI-powered technology in the Opera Mini newsreader gives users a more personalized start page each time they use it without any setup or customization. The more they read, the more personalized news feed will become. As of today, the Opera AI-powered newsreader is available in select countries such as Ghana, Kenya, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and the United States. It will be soon coming to Russia, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.

The users can also customize the news with international news sources. This feature is especially useful for checking out the news in other countries. Users can tailor both the location and news categories to their liking.

For Indian users, the news feed is also available in Gujarati, Hindi and Tamil. The company claims that Opera Mini is even more efficient by loading full news stories at least four times faster, compared with the previous version.
