About Semantic Scholar
Helping scholars discover new insights
We are a team of researchers and engineers at the Allen Institute for AI building a better way to search and discover scientific knowledge.
Scholars Building For Scholars
Staying up-to-date with scientific literature is an increasingly pressing challenge for scholars.
Our mission is to accelerate scientific breakthroughs by using AI to help scholars locate and understand the right research, make important connections, and overcome information overload.
Our Research team studies information overload and develops AI tools to overcome it. And our Product and Engineering teams deliver these unique AI-driven features at scale to millions of scholars each month.
Semantic Scholar is and always will be open and free for all to use. In addition to the search and discovery tools available at semanticscholar.org, we provide the Semantic Scholar API and Open Research Corpus as free services to the research community.
AI For The Common Good
At AI2, our mission is to contribute to humanity through high-impact AI research and engineering.
Semantic Scholar was launched in 2015 as a groundbreaking project at the Allen Institute for AI, a non-profit research institute founded in 2014 with the mission of conducting high-impact AI research and engineering in service of the common good. AI2 is the creation of Paul Allen, Microsoft co-founder, and is led by Dr. Oren Etzioni, a leading AI researcher.
