Breeding, Marshall. Yewno Discover Expands Multilingual Capabilities. April 2018. Smart Libraries Newsletter. Yewno announced a significant enhancement to its Yewno Discover product through the expansion of its content base to include German and Chinese documents in addition to the English materials previously ingested. Yewno’s Discover product makes use of artificial intelligence, especially machine learning techniques, to extract concepts from texts and provide a visual interface to enable researchers to explore scholarly literature through the relationships of concepts that ultimately produce lists of articles or other documents of interest. The technology is based on concept extraction rather than keyword indexing.

Yewno Discover (a play on “you know”) provides a new type of discovery environment, which presents a visual search experience that enables researchers and students to explore and select information resources based on concepts rather than keywords. It also allows users to discover information resources as they traverse the connections or relationships among those concepts.
