January 14, 2019 -Redwood City, CA - Yewno, Inc., a leading provider of AI-driven knowledge discovery solutions, today announces that all books and journals published by the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) will be discoverable on the Yewno Discover platform.
ICE Publishing shares expert advice, leading research and best practices in civil engineering and construction. Yewno's technology has ingested the full text of ICE's content and can therefore surface parts of books and articles that might be undiscovered in other environments. The platform, aptly named Yewno Discover, maps hundreds of millions of semantic connections among concepts extracted from full-text academic resources. Those connections link to over 200 million scholarly articles, books, and database assets – a number that continues to grow every day.
Discover allows researchers and learners to easily and intuitively explore a visual set of connections across a comprehensive research landscape, even in unfamiliar interdisciplinary fields. It is a highly effective method for discovering resources that might have otherwise been overlooked, and ensures that users experience comprehensive and credible coverage.
Mike Cookson, General Manager at ICE Publishing says, "We are pleased to include our content in Yewno Discover and enable users to see how civil engineering connects with the wider research environment."
"Yewno offers publishers increased discoverability of their content, and each publisher who adds their high-quality content to our platform enriches our users' experience. We are delighted to partner with ICE Publishing, who are leaders in knowledge transfer in the civil engineering and construction space," says Ruth Pickering, Co-Founder and Chief BD & Strategy Officer at Yewno.
Founded in 2015, Yewno is helping the world to uncover the undiscovered through its advanced dynamic Knowledge Graph and AI based inference engine, which introduces an entirely new approach to knowledge extraction. Yewno Inference Engine incorporates machine learning, neural networks, and computational linguistics into an intelligent framework to enhance human understanding by correlating concepts across a vast volume of sources. Headquartered in Redwood City, CA, and with offices in London and New York, Yewno is backed by leading investors including Pacific Capital and currently has numerous partnerships across the finance sector, top research universities, publishers and content aggregators worldwide. Yewno was recently named Outsell's 2017 Emerging Company of the Year, and was chosen from among 250 major disruptors in the global information industry.
