Announcing Yewno, a new type of conceptual search tool that uses full text analysis, computational semantics, and machine learning to visualize information and allow users to explore connections between concepts. The MIT Libraries will be participating in a beta trial of this new discovery tool in an effort to encourage new forms of discovery and knowledge creation.
Yewno is part of the MIT Libraries Experiments, a ongoing effort to “hack” the Libraries to improve knowledge discovery and find innovative uses for our collections and services.
Other libraries currently participating in beta trials of Yewno include Harvard, Stanford, Oxford, Stonehill College, Bavarian State University, the University of California-Berkeley, and the University of Michigan.
