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. [TechCrunch]
