Knowledge Juicer: Readers get Superpowers

Project description

A super assistant for online readers

A whopping 5 million new articles are published online each day, and over 3 billion Google searches are conducted worldwide each minute of every day. Content expands exponentially, yet our capacity to read or study has remained largely unchanged. The EU-funded Kjuicer project addresses this gap: a curation and AI tool to prioritise and summarise content, so that readers can quickly assess it, then read and/or study it faster. The US and EU patented tool can extract relevant information and generate zoomable texts from simple highlights. The AI version does the same and can be trained with highlights, so that the user’s interests are used to create custom summaries.

Objective

Content production has increased significantly over the past few decades, both in the public and private sector, driven mostly by the digitization process. Kjuicer is a project that aims at closing the gap between production of written content and our ability to read it. In the past few decades such gap has grown dramatically: estimates run that every day 5 million new articles get published in cyberspace.
Kjuicer is a flexible and customizable, deeply user-oriented curation tool. It allows extraction of contents in an innovative way, using highlighting colors hierarchically, yet maintaining completeness of meaning. Through a specific algorithm that scans the content's meta-data, it leverages the user’s highlights to synthesize and organize a text respecting the original version. It then makes multiple versions of it, organized in order of importance, and turns it into a browsable and zoomable resource.
Kjuicer offers a potentially disruptive innovation for texts, i.e. a solution to augment reading capabilities. It provides a pre-production service (Editor + Plug-in) and a post-production service (Suite), the first being targeted at creating native content, the second at curating existing documents or web pages.
The ever increasing complexity of our world poses knowledge challenges at all levels: from kids in school who are being asked to learn better and more, on more subjects, up to professionals who are competing based on knowledge and ability to handle complex projects. Kjuicer helps also Public Administrations and Large Private/Public Companies that need to increase communicative effectiveness.
The product will boost growth of the company, generating over 16M€ cumulated revenues in 5 years and creating 24 new jobs. The total financial requirement amounts to about 1,5M€ over 2 years, with an internal return rate of 67% and Net Present Value of about 2,3M€.
