Google News Finds HSE ‘Entertaining’

One of those odd quirks you get when an algorythm attempts to apply categorisation to web content:

Google News Thinks HSE Entertaining
Google News Ireland adds HSE to entertainment section

If anything those stories would have better relevance if they were swapped over IMO.

I suppose there’s a certain irony in this categorisation (you wont get this unless you’re Irish or have had the fortune of interacting with the Irish Health System). But it just goes to show that algos have a long way to go before they can really ‘get it’.

Anyone else seen any queer results in Google’s Irish News aggregator?
