Who is Leo and how can he help?

Leo is your personal AI research assistant who helps you declutter your feeds and dig deeper into the topics and trends you care about without losing control.

Leo continuously reads your feeds and short-lists the most relevant articles in the priority tab. 

For example, you might have a broad marketing feed connected to MOZ, Growth Hackers, Adweek, Quick Sprout, etc. with thousands of new articles per month. You can train Leo to read those 1,000+ articles and prioritize the 30 or so related to specific products, topics, or trends you care about.
You can train Leo by telling him the topics you care most about, or he can learn from what you have saved to your boards. Leo will continue to learn what you like over time by what you save and by what you downvote.

Leo Features


Priorities are how you train Leo on what you are interested in. They are created on the feed category level (not on specific sources).

There are 5 main types of priorities you can create: 

  1. Topics: prioritize mentions of topics, keywords, people, companies, products, etc.
  2. Like Board: prioritize based on articles you’ve saved to boards 
  3. Strategic Moves: prioritize product launches, funding events, mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, partnerships, New patents, Regulatory changes, etc.
  4. Security Skills: prioritize articles related to critical software vulnerabilities, malware threats, threat actor groups, Mitre ATT&CK and specific vendors as well as the option to use the Leo CVE Dashboard
  5. Biopharma Skills: for keeping up with the latest biopharma news and research insights about topics like diseases and conditions, genes, and competitors.

You can add multiple types of priorities to a single feed. You can also combine multiple types of priorities together into one priority through boolean operators.

Refining Priorities

All the articles prioritized by Leo have a green priority marker. Clicking on that marker offers an explanation of why the article was prioritized and the opportunity to refine, pause or remove that priority.

  • When a recommendation is useful, you can save it to a board to send Leo a positive signal.
  • When a recommendation is not useful, you can use the “Less-Like-This” down arrow button to correct Leo.

The Less-Like-This down arrow button will give you a dropdown with a few options to tell Leo what you did not like about the article. It might be that it was not related to your priority, there was a specific topic you didn't like, or it was a duplicate. Whatever the case, sending this feedback to Leo will help him deliver more relevant articles going forward.

On mobile: You can swipe over an article from right to left to initiate Less-Like-This or the icon is on top of any article when you're in an article view.

Mute Filters

Mute filters train Leo to mute specific keywords and remove all mentions of those keywords from your feeds, temporarily or permanently.

You can mute things like companies, people, topics, authors, sites, and more. 

There are three ways to create a mute filter: 

  1. On the Train Leo menu
  2. By highlighting the word in the article and choosing mute in the dropdown
  3. By downvoting an article and muting the Leo-detected topic directly from there

The Deduplication skill removes duplicate articles from feeds and keyword alerts.

This Leo skill is already activated for all of your feeds. It is running in the background of your account, removing any near-exact duplicate articles. 

When Leo removes duplicates, you will see a small gray box at the bottom right-hand side of your feed that shows you how many duplicates have been removed. You can see the total number of duplicates removed in the Analytics tab of your feed.

Note: Deduplication doesn't work in 3rd party apps using Feedly as a backend sync service.

See more about Deduplication here.


Leo automatically reads all the articles in your Feeds and summarizes them.

When you open an article, Leo also highlights the key sentences which are part of the summary. The goal is to help you get to the key insights more efficiently.

Leo comes with a brand new feed analytics panel to give you insight into your feeds. 

You can find this by going to your feed (category level, not source level) and clicking the Analytics tab found above the list of articles.

This tab will give you an overview of how many articles have been prioritized vs. not, as well as insight into how many articles you are marking as read, saving to boards, or reading.

You will also get a list of the top 10 topics that Leo has detected in your feeds. This gives you insight into what topics you are most interested in vs. those you spend little time reading. If you hover over any of the topics in this list, you will be able to prioritize or mute them directly from this page. 

Last, this page will show you how many duplicates have been removed from your feed so far.
