Yewno expands content on Discover platform to include US Federal Government information

March 28, 2018 - Redwood City, CA -- Yewno, Inc., leading provider of Artificial Intelligence solutions, today announces the introduction of free and open US Federal Government documents into its Discover platform for universities and libraries. Within this platform, users will be able to explore millions of federal documents at the conceptual level.

Government information is vital for analysts, researchers, students, and citizens seeking to engage with their leadership, study decision making, and support accountability. While government information is largely publicly available through websites and repositories; it is a phenomenally fragmented and unstructured set of content. Access is rarely enough: the dense text and interwoven nature of government decision making presents a tremendous challenge for actual use.

Yewno is uniquely positioned to solve this problem by consolidating, preserving and increasing the discoverability of government data. Yewno accomplishes this using their propriety knowledge graph to transform challenging, fragmented, and overwhelming unstructured and structured data sources into actionable intelligence. Yewno's core technology analyzes content and identifies concepts, patterns, and connections. By interpreting chains of concepts and relationships, it draws inferences and unlocks insights that would otherwise not be readily apparent.

Yewno has already ingested over 72 million open US Federal Government documents. These documents span the three main branches of government (Legislative, Judicial, and Executive), as well as every cabinet department. Documents include voting records, position statements, financial information, patents, and published research, and span as far back as the 1700's.

"In addition to building a reservoir of high-quality content, Yewno is committed to helping people to access and understand what that content means," said Ruggero Gramatica, CEO and founder of Yewno. "This addition opens tremendous opportunity for study and engagement."
