Taylor & Francis Group partner with AI technology experts UNSILO to enhance online user experience
Taylor & Francis Group today announces a new partnership with leading AI technology providers UNSILO to help enrich users’ online experiences.
From February, users of taylorfrancis.com will be shown recommendations of additional relevant content based on what they are already reading. This will enable them to discover new research more easily.
This new functionality is made possible thanks to advanced text-reading technology, which uses Natural Language Processing to analyze vast amounts of text to recognize the sentiment and topic, and recognize the most important concepts.
This newly-formed partnership is part of a long-term commitment by Taylor & Francis to improve the discoverability of highly relevant content for users, encouraging enhanced learning and knowledge-sharing among researchers.
“We are very pleased to be partnering with UNSILO as our semantic enrichment partner”, commented Max Gabriel, CDO Taylor & Francis Group. “They are an impressive team with long-term vision that fits with ours. We were particularly impressed that UNSILO’s concept extraction engine works equally well in any subject domain, which makes it simple to deploy across our wide range of content.”
Carlos Cubas, VP, Architecture & Engineering, added: “We are happy to partner with UNSILO in what is to be the first of many AI developments at Taylor & Francis. Using their API-based services, we will be able to implement a simple and rapid deployment of state-of-the-art machine learning tools to improve researchers’ user journey.”
Thomas Laursen, Chief Executive Officer at UNSILO, stated: “We are extremely excited to be partnering with one of the world’s leading publishers of scholarly content, and to deliver tools for linking related content using our document enrichment platform. We appreciate the engagement and vision shown by Taylor & Francis and look forward to a valuable long-term strategic relationship.”
