PrIA (for “Private Intelligent Assistant”) was created by researchers at Stony Brook University and IBM to keep your user profile private. The app requires an Andoid smartphone and a laptop to collect data from your Twitter, Facebook, and Chrome activity. The laptop app downloads stories from Google News without logging in to a Google account and then, based on the profile stored only on your devices, sends recommendations for stories you may want to view to an app on the smartphone. Say the researchers, “The important thing is, nobody but your phone and your laptop have this information.” Glad someone is working on this!
