tired of your current search engine?
Discover a new way
to find documents
from your desk
Have you found the information you need once a search engine gave you 5,000 references in less than one second?
Are you unhappy with your current search engine?
I am a Professor and researcher in material chemistry and nanotechnology. I have been struggling to find the right information among all documents being published every year in my domain of research.
And every year, it becomes worse!
30 years ago, I could cover my domain by reviewing weekly published literature. But now, academic publications alone use to double every 8 years.
And it's only academic journals! Every day, we produce the equivalent in data of 7,500 times the full content of the US Library of Congress.
Digital data is collected in such overwhelming amounts that one of the biggest challenges lies simply in our ability to access, evaluate and use information.
So, how can we address a problem where a single document database contains hundreds of thousands of documents if we are still using methods developed 40 years ago?
Of course, all the current search engines are extremely efficient in finding documents. But, what are we doing when we've found 5,000 references in less than one second? We scroll the first page of the results and skip the rest.
And this discouraged me: I could easily find tons of documents, but I couldn't find the information that matters.
I'm convinced that this frustration is shared with most "information workers": not only students or researchers, but also lawyers, or employees in a company. It's simple: if you need daily access to any database or use Google™ to find information, you are an information worker.
And if you are an employer, did you know that a 2012 survey showed that information loss and time wasted to retrieve it, costs on average, $20,000/Yr per information worker (International Data Corp., USA).
I believe that this frustration is also shared by people who are in charge of documents: publishers of journals, managers of the company DMS. They are frustrated because readers or employees cannot easily find the information they need, while this information is actually present in the database.
With my frustration growing, I decided to elaborate on a solution that would help me find the information I need, a solution that I wish would already exist.
I've finally reached a point where this solution is advanced enough that I can share it with all people who are also frustrated.
We call it "The Bridge" because it connects you to the place hosting the information you need.
So, if you are a user of information, a producer of information, or in charge of a document database, why don't you give a try? For the sake of demonstration, our current prototype connects you to more than 130,000 long academic documents on any topic. And it's free!
I wish you could tell me if the solution we offer could help you be more efficient in finding or delivering the information that matters. Or what we could do to fulfill your dreams.
