One launch at Slush I was particularly interested in is Futureful. For some time I've been hearing rumors the company was something really innovative in artificial intelligence and web browsing. Marko Anderson, the co-founder of Futureful presented the product on stage and announced their Seed round led by Janus Friis, the founder of Kazaa and Skype.
Essentially, Futureful has invented an intelligent browser for the iPad. The service finds out the topics you're interested in by plugging into your Twitter account, for example, and then scrolling topics slowly across the top of the browser. Once one or many topics are selected, you just drag down to find a new article on the topics you've selected.
Futureful is a Finnish, research based startup that is developing a predictive discovery engine. In essence, they want to help you discover more interesting content on the internet, based on your behaviour and liking. The company was founded by Marko Anderson and Jarno Koponen and they pitch themselves as "imagine if Hunch and Flipboard bootstrapped a lovechild."
