Why do higher learning institutes need Consensus?

AI that’s connected to science

AI is a powerful tool that higher learning students are already using worldwide. When connected to a dedicated database it speeds up the literature review process, helps researchers find relevant papers faster, and surfaces the highest quality science.

Utilize the best research tools

The traditional tools for searching scientific literature have remained the same for nearly two decades. The core search technology requires knowing the exact keywords to start with, the relevancy of resulting papers can be poor, and it’s time consuming to scan and filter large volumes of research papers.

Find the best science faster

Searching through literature is a necessary part of research and learning. However it’s tedious and time-consuming. Consensus doesn’t replace human understanding, it helps students and researchers get to the best science to review faster.
