June 16, 2021, Palo Alto, CA - The UniversitÓ Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan today announces that they will be providing their students with access to Yewno|Edge, a web-based investment research platform powered by artificial intelligence. The Yewno|Edge platform is an institutional grade tool that solves the information overload problem faced by modern investment researchers. Monitoring fundamental and alternative data sources ľ from news to patents to court filings, it uncovers connections between companies, events, and trends faster than humanly possible. It is like having a team of analysts at your fingertips.
A longtime leader in tech-forward research solutions, UCSC first adopted Yewno's AI technology in 2017, offering Yewno Discover, an academic research tool which supports exploratory research by reading full-text content and storing it within a dynamic knowledge graph framework. Yewno Discover proved to be so useful, that UCSC approached Yewno about designing a way to store their own research output in the knowledge graph. Called "Repository Visualization," this feature helps Cattolica's researchers to visualize their content within the broader academic research ecosystem, go deeper with existing research, and even connect with fellow authors on campus.
With a mutual determination to democratize knowledge, Yewno and UCSC partnered to offer the web-based Yewno Discover to all Italians over the course of 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic kept libraries closed and people at home. "We strongly believe in the value of innovation and we are committed to providing our patrons with new AI powered tools for teaching and research", says Mario Gatti, Campus Director - Milan Campus and Director of Research Area.
"We see ourselves as partners in the research process," says Yewno COO, Ruth Pickering. "Our Yewno|Edge platform offers researchers access to AI capabilities that are not available in any other platform. Our concept-based approach powers financial research in a unique way, not only saving time and supporting better outcomes but also in highlighting non-obvious connections."
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 sources. Headquartered in Palo Alto, 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 recently earned Frost & Sullivan's prestigious Global Technology Innovation Award for Predictive Analytics in Financial Services.
