If you’ve ever had to do research for a science class in school, you know just how difficult it can be. Wikipedia is not a great source because of inaccuracies and information biases. Scientific papers are full of information but can be difficult to read unless you’re already an expert in the subject matter. Of course, you aren’t, or you wouldn’t be in the class. This is one of the problems that Alviss.ai is trying to address.
What is Alviss.ai?
Alviss.ai is an artificial intelligence software start-up building applications to extract insights from scientific data. The company offers personalized access to scientific publications and information for everyone.
The core of the company is in the indexing technology. Currently, the company has indexed more than 100 million scientific papers, extracting essential information. Using this database, the company produces applications with various applications to give people access to the information that has been gathered.
The Alviss.ai applications
There are two main applications currently available from Alviss.ai: Alviss Assistant and Read Science Better. They also offer some tools for professionals through their Professional Dashboard.
Alviss Assistant is an application that helps you in your quest to research. You can ask the system questions and receive answers, all powered by the company’s knowledge base. You can also save your question and answer pairs for future reference, as well as save them as digital flashcards to test yourself.
The Alviss Assistant is available now from the Apple App Store (iOS), Google Play (Android), and HUAWEI AppGallery (HUAWEI Android phones).
Read Science Better
Read Science Better is an application that takes scientific papers and makes them readable for people without a scientific background. It extracts the most important information from papers and presents it in a way that is easy to understand.
The app also allows you to keep up with the latest news in science. It uses the company’s existing index of scientific papers, both current and new publications. You are able to create watch lists for topics of your choice and as new papers are published, the app provides notifications of new articles in your field of study or interest.

If you are a professional scientist or researcher, this might be the tool for you. It gives researchers access to more advanced tools, such as the Automated Reviewer and Editorial Assistant, which creates abstracts from full text. This is perfect for colleges, institutions, and other professionals in the industry. You can also explore the articles in the company’s index and dive into them more deeply.
Many of the tools also offer API access, giving professionals a more direct access method into the data. For example, the Editorial Assistant’s ability to create an abstract, complete with keywords, can be accessed through the UI or through API, giving users more choice and flexibility in its use.
The services are available now. Both mobile apps are available to download for free, while the professional tools come with a usage-based cost structure. To learn more or try them out, head to the company’s website.
