Developing Super-Hero Suits For Knowledge Workers

Today, a large fraction of us are working on managing knowledge. We acquire it, we curate it and we share it. But while our knowledge, and knowledge needs, are increasing at a rapid pace, our ability to manage it is limited. We simply cannot answer everyone’s questions, or read everyone's notes.
Bloomsbury AI is developing fundamental technology that turns knowledge workers into the superheroes needed to address this problem: instead of reading a few documents a day, they can read thousands, and instead of helping a few people, they can help millions, in an easier and less stressful manner.

Research

Research at Bloomsbury AI actively participates in the company vision by developing and extending machine learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP) methods. We have a focus on impactful research that can be moved into production as quickly as possible.

Sample Research Areas

Machine reading methods that understand written text to answer questions about its explicit content, across a broad range of domains.

Robust question answering methods that understand when different questions ask for the same answer.

Reasoning methods that can infer answers from text that are not explicitly stated.

Dialog methods that acquire expert knowledge and deliver it to customers through conversations.

Methods that automatically explain why the agent made its choices.
