But instead of giving you a bunch of links, asgard gives you:
“What is this technology??”
How are people using it, applications
Advantages & drawbacks
Related technologies: complementary & similar
“ Who is working on this technology?”
researchers, developers, open-source projects...
“Is this technology mature?”
Fundings, publication & patents, articles, code repositories, …
Our technology allows us to provide structured, accessible and interactive information to our users by processing our data sources into a comprehensive source of information.
We use the latest technology in machine learning, natural language processing and in large scale data analysis to handle the 4 main tasks.
We collect and extract key concepts from the data sources we have selected.
We use the context where our concepts where extracted from in order to disambiguate and link them to the right Wikipedia article and identify technologies.
We infer relationships between our concepts to extract new information about technology such as its attributes, advantages and drawbacks, or applications people are building with.
We use the relationship we extracted from text, the structure of our selected datasources, and our Wikipedia referential to build our own knowledge graph database.
We use the Wikipedia public knowledge database to build our customed ontology - knowledge graph - upon. It is a way to have an accessible, structured & up-to-date referent source to analyze our different sources.
The arXiv grants open access to more than a million e-prints in Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science. These publications indicate research and development trends and help us to analyze research ecosystems.
TechCrunch is an online publisher of technology industry news. Analysis of news about technology & startups is a way to detect market trends and latest opinion. It is also a way to do prospective about technology and to understand how technology is impacting our lives & behaviors.
CrunchBase is startup database operated by TechCrunch that contains information about the startup ecosystem: investors, incubators, start-ups, fundings, IPOs, M&A deals. These data reflect market shifts.
Patents data from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is a window into technology research & development, as well as a marker of interest of companies into technologies.
GitHub is a web-based Git repository hosting service the largest host of source code in the world. This is the best source of information to know what computer science related technologies people are genuinely using and how they use it.
