Semantic Scholar is a project developed at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, released in November 2015. It is designed to be a "smart" search service for journal articles.[1] The project uses a combination of machine learning, natural language processing, machine vision to add a layer of semantic analysis to the traditional methods of citation analysis.[2] In comparison to Google Scholar and PubMed, it is designed to quickly highlight the most important papers and identify the connections between them.

As of January 2018, following a 2017 project that added biomedical papers and topic summaries, the corpus now includes more than 40 million papers from computer science and biomedicine.[3] In March 2018, Doug Raymond, who developed machine learning initiatives for the Amazon Alexa platform was hired to lead the Semantic Scholar project.[4]
