Just a list of plugin I am considering using as a base for further developments:
Kindred Posts uses artificial intelligence to learn how your website visitors use your site and recommends content based on their interests.
(not maintained anymore but developper actively asked for people to join and keep maintaining the project… might do that… we’ll see)
WordLift helps you organize posts and pages adding facts, links and media to build websites. Lets you create, own and publish your own knowledge graph. WordLift publishes your content as Linked Open Data following Tim Berners-Lee‘s Linked Data Principles.
Doesn’t seem very much self-contained – but probably rely on some external API – i’ll have to see.
Company behind this is italian: https://wordlift.io/
I am excited about this plugin because it does 90% of one of the tasks I have to deploy on some LMS and might actually be of great use… will have to dig into that…
Primal for WordPress uses a patented artificial intelligence to
deliver highly relevant and up-to-date information to your readers,
tailored to each page you create.
not thrilled about this one.
First – the applied functionality of the learning process is to fetch external content from the rest of the web – so not very much what I want to do. But maybe the learning algorithm is worth watching. If it is accessible… which is not sure yet.
Watsonfinds analyzes your content to provide insights about the emotions that your audience may perceive as they read it.
well… here not much to learn about the AI part but interesting to see how Watson perform on your content.
Contextly helps you build a loyal audience through engagement tools that keep readers reading. Contextly does far more than just related post recommendations. We also get readers to explore your site by identifying your evergreen posts (think oldies, but goodies) and your most popular posts. For larger sites, we can also personalize recommendations for return readers.
Also has a massive amount of features:
Multiple Recommendation Modules / Related Content / Personalized Content / Popular Content / Evergreen Content / Video Recommendations / Product Recommendations / Editorial Control/Curation / SEO / Promotional Links / Responsive Designs / Analytics / Performance / Custom Post Types / Channel Notifications / FollowUp Notifications
but, there is a catch… as always – that none of these elements are a part of the wordpress infrastructure – just some external API – and cost anywhere from 9$ to 99$ per month (more if you go for an enterprise version).
I want to state that while this is not a solution I would recommend on the long run – it does look very appetising – and is on point for most of the features I’d need.
Also – all these cloud solution are raising a lot of privacy questions – what do they do with your users data and who is it sold to in the end… so there is also that.
seems to have some interesting plugins but most are going to rely on external engine – which is also not open source and not accessible – so that’s a lot of lost data and not very much useful.
Probably next step will be to explore the world of open source engines for machine learning.
