Yewno Launches Unearth: A Unique New AI Tool for Publishers

Yewno, Inc. announced today the launch of Yewno Unearth. Yewno Unearth
is a truly unique transformational exploration tool for publishers based
on AI technology. It uses an algorithmic approach to understand topics,
sub-topics and concepts within any document to give an accurate and
comprehensive view across any catalog of information.

“Yewno Unearth is allowing us to explore connections between
publications that were previously locked inside the book wrapper. The
potential for improved sales and marketing was an immediate draw.”

Alan Harvey, Stanford University Press

Significantly, Unearth transcends the limitations imposed by poor
metadata, and provides highly accurate and granular content information,
enabling publishers to gain essential new insights about their own
content, optimize operations, inform planning and accelerate sales.

“In addition to receiving highly accurate information, the efficiencies
created by using Unearth have allowed our editorial, marketing and sales
departments to focus on larger, more strategic questions.”
– Amy
Brand, MIT Press

Yewno Unearth is the second major launch for the company following Yewno
Discover which has transformed over a hundred million articles and books
into a network of connected concepts and documents; enabling new
serendipitous discoveries for students and researchers, and enhancing
the discoverability of publishers’ content. Yewno Unearth provides
publishers with an equally sophisticated topical hierarchy and concept
mapping of the publisher’s own content at the title-level and across a
portfolio. Using an intuitive interface, publishers can easily download
detailed reports about their content at a portfolio, title, or
chapter/article level. The tool can illuminate the comparative
performance of various topics with a portfolio or item, and expose the
usage of topics within Discover.

Yewno worked with a range of scholarly publishing development partners,
incorporating their feedback to maximize Unearth’s potential use across
an organization:

“What differentiates Unearth from an effective cataloging tool to a transformational
tool for publishers, is that it provides essential insight for a variety
of publishing functions. It can be used to enhance advanced
categorization; inform acquisitions decisions; refine marketing efforts;
transform institutional sales and e-commerce; and advance communication
about content both internally and with clients.”
– Ruggero
Gramatica, Founder and CEO, Yewno
