UC Berkeley has joined Stanford as beta testers of a new educational discovery tool, Yewno.
Yewno is a discovery tool that enables you to see the relationship between concepts, rather than simply displaying results that contain the concepts searched for. Yewno enables one to explore a topic that they do not know much about, to discover relationships.
Yewno enables searchers to discover the relationship between concepts by providing a graphical display of the interrelationships between concepts. By employing computational semantics, graph theory, and machine learning, Yewno extracts concepts from scholarly publications including journals, books, and theses, and displays the search results in a concept map format. Users can discover the interrelationships between concepts and have direct access to online resources.
Unlike traditional search, which strives to provide the singular correct answer as quickly as possible, Yewno enables the connection of multiple concepts and information.
