Amsterdam Science Park based startup launches new AI Research Navigator platform

With millions of people worldwide working with AI algorithms in 2020, and over 90% of mid-size and larger companies now having a specialized AI or Data Science team, researchers and engineers in this field are literally drowning in the pace of innovation. Amsterdam Science Park based startup Zeta Alpha is building a new AI Enterprise Search and Insights platform, called AI Research Navigator, with the goal to help people make better decisions and organize their work.

The last thing companies investing in AI want is that their highly paid expert teams miss the boat by betting on the wrong AI trends or technologies, because they don’t have time to keep the flow of new research under control

A lot of the leading innovation by large research teams at Big Tech companies is published in open academic research platforms, in blogs and accompanied by open source software, but the amount of information is starting to exceed human capacity. The new deep learning based search platform, called AI Research Navigator, helps AI and Data Science experts organize this flood of information.

Jakub Zavrel, Zeta Alpha founder and Dutch AI veteran “I never understood why AI people do not take their own medicine for organising their research ”

Zeta Alpha founder and Dutch AI veteran Jakub Zavrel, previously responsible for the successful recruitment AI scale-up Textkernel, started developing the tool to apply the recent advances in language understanding by deep learning networks to the information overload in his own field of expertise: “I never understood why AI people do not take their own medicine for organising their research”. He believes that AI has the potential to help people make better decisions in their areas of expertise and therefore do better work. “General academic search engines like Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic or Elsevier Scopus do not have enough AI specific focus, and popular open publication platforms in AI, like arXiv.org, do not have modern search and recommendation technology”, he adds. Zeta Alpha is currently working with top AI researchers at the University of Amsterdam, and with a number of other Amsterdam based AI startups as launching customers of the tool.
