Accelerate Knowledge Discovery and Problem-Solving with a "Virtual Subject Matter Expert"

Engineers and other technical professionals spend a third or more of their time searching for the information and insights they need to complete designs, solve problems, and develop solutions.

Research Assistant by IHS Markit is a powerful content analysis toolset that acts like a "virtual subject matter expert (SME)" to help technical professionals quickly discover knowledge and answers in an organization's library of trusted technical reference, regardless of where that information resides - enabling engineers to make decisions faster and with greater confidence.

On-Demand Access to Essential Information and Insights

Research Assistant uses artificial intelligence technologies like natural-language processing and machine learning to quickly surface relevant knowledge and find answers to technical challenges from a wide variety of content and data sources indexed in Engineering Workbench, the leading Engineering Intelligence solution. 

Using next-generation content analytics and search technology, Research Assistant enables rapid, federated searching across an organization's own structured and unstructured data scattered among disparate corporate systems; IHS Markit content subscriptions such as standards, applied technical reference, journals and reports, or patents and applications; plus other third-party sources, including trusted web content.

Slash Research Time by 1/3 or More

Results in Research Assistant are organized and presented so as to optimize research efficiencies and to point engineers in directions that they might not otherwise have considered.

Engineers, scientists, researchers and other technical professionals use these capabilities in Research Assistant to:

  • Easily and rapidly review a large body of reference content to drill down to relevant documents related to their research.
  • Quickly surface relevant answers and solutions across a multitude of internal and external content sources, regardless of document type, location or language of authorship.
  • Easily review knowledge or trends across different fields or industries related to a search topic, so that they can surface knowledge available in sources they might not have thought to review.
