Thiruvananthapuram, April 23 : State-run Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management - Kerala (IIITM-K) has developed an AI Semantic search engine to enable researchers to get deeper insights into scientific studies, especially when the need to find an early solution to the COVID-19 crisis has resulted in a large set of complex scientific information. Named '', which in Sanskrit means 'finding out', the search engine is developed by a team led by A.P. James, Professor at Centre for Artificial General Intelligence and Neuromorphic Systems (neuro GI), IIITM-K, as part of the open science initiative of the research centre. The search engine will guide the researchers to the right information very fast.
