April 29, 2021, Palo Alto, CA. Yewno, a leading global provider of artificial intelligence solutions, today announces that Kennesaw State University has adopted their Yewno Discover platform for use through their libraries. Kennesaw is the first university in the state of Georgia to offer Yewno Discover to their students and faculty.
Yewno Discover is an AI-powered research tool that helps users perform meaningful research in a short amount of time. It ingests and reads full-text content which it stores in a proprietary, dynamic knowledge graph. Users navigate a front-end representation of the knowledge graph to explore millions of concepts and supporting scholarly materials. The intuitive interface helps users to efficiently hone topics, disambiguate terms, explore relationships between concepts, and evaluate information. In a single session, users can learn what would otherwise require multiple hours of searching using traditional methods.
A leader in innovative teaching and learning, Kennesaw State University offers more than 150 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees to its more than 41,000 students. With 11 colleges on two metro Atlanta campuses, Kennesaw State is the second-largest university in the state, and a Carnegie-designated doctoral research institution (R2), placing it among an elite group of only 6 percent of U.S. colleges and universities with an R1 or R2 status. With the expansion of their graduate programs and the addition of both staff and graduate students, Kennesaw's Assistant Vice President & Dean of Library Services, David Evans, saw the need for cutting edge research tools. "I have researched and written about the role of AI in university libraries, and I see the role of AI as a tool to be harnessed for the betterment of library services and university research output as a whole. Yewno Discover will help our librarians better serve our growing community."
Says Yewno COO Ruth Pickering, "Yewno's mission is to transform information into knowledge. Libraries can help their communities navigate through the overwhelming sea of information to quickly identify what is most relevant and gain insights that using other technologies might not be apparent. We use AI to fast-forward past all of the irrelevant information so that our researchers can spend more time performing meaningful research."
Founded in 2015, Yewno is helping the world to uncover the undiscovered through its new inference engine, which introduces an entirely new approach to knowledge discovery. Yewno inference engine incorporates machine learning, cognitive science, neural networks, and computational linguistics into an intelligent framework to enhance human understanding by correlating concepts across vast volumes of sources. Headquartered in Palo Alto, CA, and with offices in London and New York, Yewno is backed by leading investors including Pacific Capital and AI Capital and currently has numerous partnerships across the finance sector, top research universities, publishers and content aggregators worldwide. Yewno recently earned Frost & Sullivan's prestigious Global Technology Innovation Award for Predictive Analytics in Financial Services.
