Palo Alto, CA - March 18, 2021 -Yewno, a leading global provider of artificial intelligence solutions, today announces that the University of California Riverside have adopted their Yewno Discover platform, an AI-powered tool for academic research. UC Riverside students will be able to access Yewno Discover via the Primo VE interface.

Yewno Discover helps users perform meaningful research in a short amount of time. It works by ingesting and reading full-text content and storing that content in a knowledge graph. Users can navigate a front-end representation of the knowledge graph to explore millions of concepts and supporting scholarly materials. In a single session, users can learn what would otherwise require multiple hours of honing topics, locating resources, reading, processing and evaluating information. The system is entirely web-based and can be used whether learning remotely or within the physical library.

The University of California Riverside is a highly esteemed research university, ranking within the top 1% of top universities worldwide. It is an RI Doctoral University with very high research output according to the Carnegie Classification system. With a focus on research, the UC Riverside library seeks cutting edge tools to help students facilitate exploratory learning.

"With the exponential growth of content, the value of information curation and discovery multiplies. When faced with hours of honing searches, navigating multiple platforms, and testing terms, most defer to the first page of the first search. Yewno allows users at all stages of the research journey to navigate intuitively and easily through the myriad of content available." says Tiffany Moxham, AUL, Content and Discovery, UC Riverside.

"Yewno Discover was designed with students and librarians in mind" says Yewno COO Ruth Pickering. "the Knowledge Graph shows connections and context which is invaluable. Then the AI technology takes researchers to high quality content and saves hours of time. By quickly gathering relevant sources and exposing non obvious connections there is more time to work on research output."
