Yewno is a discovery tool that provides a graphical display of the interrelationships between concepts. Yewno uses computational semantics, graph theory, and machine learning to extract concepts from scholarly publications including journals, books, and theses, and displays search results in a graphical interface that displays the interrelationships between those concepts. Users can follow links in that display to find the underlying publications from which concepts and relationships are extracted, and the system integrates with library resource licenses allowing users to have direct access to the full text of underlying publications.
Yewno is currently in Beta test, and feedback on the tool is welcome. At present, most resources are in English, but new resources are being constantly ingested.
To access Yewno via VPN you must use Stanford’s Full Traffic (non-split-tunnel) VPN.
