About Scitodate

At Scitodate we believe that if an answer is known by science it should be trivial to find. However, every day approximately 70,000 new papers are published. As a result, it has become an impossible task to stay up to date with the most recent developments in a specific field of research, let alone all of science. We use Big Data and Artificial Intelligence to make sense of this all. We analyse ~ 28 million scientific articles to extract market insights, identify trends and discover prospects for producers or a high-tech research equipment. Our state-of-the-art AI engine helps them make their business more scalable and to be ahead of their competition.
