London, UK -- August 25, 2022. Yewno, a leading global provider of artificial intelligence solutions, today announces that the University of East London has adopted their Yewno Discover platform. UEL will be integrating Yewno Discover into their Primo installation, which will enable discovery to remain within the library ecosystem.
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 Yewno's 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.
The University of East London was introduced to Yewno through Jisc. Jisc is a not-for-profit company that works on behalf of the UK higher education sector to negotiate and license high-quality digital content to support academic research, teaching and learning. In 2019, Yewno and Jisc partnered to offer Yewno Discover to UK higher education institutions at a discounted rate.
"Students comment about the challenges they face in discovering information. They often have a general idea of what they are seeking, but are not quite sure how to mine that golden piece of information. The Yewno discovery graph enables that serendipitous approach to finding information - like browsing the stacks and finding the right book next to the one you thought you wanted. I look forward to seeing how our students and staff engage with the tool," says Regina Everitt, ACOO (Service Excellence) & Director of Library, Archives and Learning Services at University of East London.
"Partnerships like the one we have with Jisc help us to deliver cutting edge technology to university libraries" commented Ruth Pickering, Yewno Co-Founder and COO. "The goal is to help researchers explore and expand their paths to knowledge discovery."
Founded in 2015, Yewno is helping the world to uncover the undiscovered through its 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 Palo Alto, CA, and with offices in New York and London, Yewno has numerous partners and clients including top research universities, publishers, and content aggregators worldwide.
