Huffington Post Buys Out Adaptive Semantics To Manage Comments

Posted Jun 19, 2010

The Huffington Post has made their first acquisition.  Adaptive Semantics is a web start-up that run by two people that provides a semantic analysis engine used by The Huffington Post to management a massive number of comments every day.

Before The Huffington Post bought out Adaptive Semantives, the blog network was Adaptive’s only outside investor with a 20% equity stake.  Adaptive Semantics was founded by Elena Haliczer and Jeff Revesz.  Both will join The Huffington Post to oversee community technology R&D.  The Huffington Post receives about 3 million comments a month.
