Clarivate Analytics Acquires Research Startup Kopernio to Accelerate Pace of Scientific Innovation

Jan Reichelt, Kopernio Co-founder and European tech entrepreneur, to join Clarivate Analytics as Managing Director, Web of Science

PHILADELPHIA, April 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Clarivate Analytics today announced the strategic acquisition of AI-technology startup Kopernio, to create the definitive publisher-neutral platform for research workflow and analysis for scientific researchers, publishers and institutions worldwide. Kopernio’s vision is to legally provide one-click access to millions of journal articles and academic research papers across the globe, dramatically improving and facilitating access to scientific knowledge.

From right to left: Jan Reichelt (Managing Director, Web of Science and President, Kopernio), Annette Thomas (CEO, Scientific and Academic Research), and Ben Kaube (Managing Director, Kopernio)

This acquisition will address a well-documented issue in the discovery and access of scientific and academic research today, which stems from the circuitous, time-consuming and manual routes that researchers take to access the journal articles they need, even when their institutions and organisations have legitimate subscription access. This has resulted in the growth of social sharing networks and a hotly discussed dark web of crowdsourced journal articles.

Kopernio uses artificial intelligence to enable users to seamlessly access journal articles with just one-click, saving researchers time and frustration when accessing their institutional subscriptions. Kopernio automatically detects what individual or institutional subscriptions a user already possesses and facilitates instant access to the chosen article. It will also suggest free, alternative legal versions of the content that might already exist on openly available platforms if a user lacks the required subscriptions to access content behind a paywall.

Kopernio was founded by Jan Reichelt and Ben Kaube, the co-founders of Mendeley and Newsflo, respectively. With a proven track record of creating innovative technology solutions for the research community, Reichelt will join the group as Managing Director, Web of Science, and report to Annette Thomas (CEO, Scientific and Academic Research), whilst continuing to support Kopernio’s growth and strategic direction as the company’s President. Kaube will join as Managing Director, Kopernio.

Clarivate Analytics will invest in and scale-up Kopernio, while integrating it within other Clarivate products and services along with third-party platforms and partners. Kopernio intends to quickly build a valuable commercial offering for publishers and academic institutions.

Annette Thomas, CEO,  Scientific & Academic Research division at Clarivate Analytics explained:  “This is a strategic investment to acquire and scale a highly complementary business; the combined effect of which will address a major issue in scientific and academic research today. The scale, reach and unique citation network of Web of Science, the world’s most trusted and extensive publisher-neutral citation index and research analysis platform, combined with Kopernio’s researcher-facing product, will allow us to significantly increase access to research articles and provide novel solutions to the problems in research across the ecosystem. It further establishes our commitment to develop world-class innovative products to address critical challenges in one of the most important fields our society relies on: science and research.”

Jan Reichelt, Co-Founder, Kopernio and incoming Managing Director at Web of Science added,  “The global scale as well as the publisher-neutral position of Clarivate Analytics will allow us to quickly scale Kopernio and finally help solve one of the most frustrating and time-consuming research problems today. It’s amazing to get another opportunity to help advance the technologies that support researchers in their daily work. Our partnership with Clarivate will allow us to develop new features that will be available to ten million researchers and scientists worldwide and in addition will provide valuable support and insights for publishers and academic institutions too.”

Both Clarivate and Kopernio share a strong commitment to transforming the way articles are delivered to  researchers whilst supporting the existing ecosystem between publishers and institutions. Each year, 10 million researchers around the globe access 2.5 billion journal articles (in PDF format) in order to conduct their research, whilst universities invest millions to provide access to academic journals.1   

About Kopernio: Kopernio is a London-based startup, established in 2017, by the founders of Mendeley and Newsflo. Kopernio’s vision is to provide immediate one-click access to academic journal articles, dramatically improving and facilitating access to scientific knowledge worldwide.

About Jan Reichelt: Jan Reichelt is the former Co-Founder of Mendeley, a global research collaboration platform. Jan led the company from foundation to acquisition by Reed Elsevier (now RELX) in 2013. He continued to lead Mendeley while at Elsevier, successfully growing it to service millions of users. Jan also supports other startups as an angel investor, was named “European Founder of the Year 2013”, and sits on the board of Emerge Education, an EdTech-focused accelerator, and previously served as an advisor to SAP’s supervisory board. He graduated with an MBA, having studied Business and Information Management in Germany, England and Italy.

Today, Clarivate Analytics is a new and independent company on a bold entrepreneurial mission to help our clients radically reduce the time from new ideas to life-changing innovations.

CIO Review: FaceTec Awarded "10 Most Promising Physical Security Technology Solution Providers – 2018"

LAS VEGAS, April 10, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The CIO Review has named FaceTec as one of its 10 most promising technology solutions providers in physical security for 2018. After a successful commercial rollout on 4 continents, FaceTec’s AI-driven ZoOm® 3D Face Login solution has proven valuable in many applications, including banking and government, and now has been highlighted for its unique physical access security benefits.

ZoOm showcased it’s mobile physical access management capabilities at CES 2018 in a comprehensive self driving-car experience with IAV Automotive Engineering. ZoOm prevented unauthorized access, yet allowed authorized drivers to enter the car instantly, while automatically personalizing environment settings, allowing in-car purchases and giving access to advanced vehicle diagnostics.

Drivers enrolled into IAV’s app with ZoOm, capturing and encrypting the authorized user’s face image, verifying its three-dimensionality, and verifying over 20 liveness traits which were then used to create a user’s biometric “facemap”. The entire enrollment process was completed in only about 20 seconds. When the authorized driver accessed the vehicle, they used ZoOm to authenticate themselves on their smartphone, a process that takes only 1-2 seconds. ZoOm accurately compared the human the user’s mobile camera saw to the facemap of the authorized user. Once successfully matched, the car automatically unlocked and granted access.

“FaceTec’s professional, innovative team and their outstanding commitment to our project helped us integrate ZoOm – the most secure face biometric we’ve ever tested – into our successful connected car project at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. We look forward to continuing to work together on several upcoming projects,” said Christoph Kielmann, Senior Vice President Vehicle Electronics, IAV Automotive Engineering.

After CES, Turbi, a leading Brazilian car sharing service, deployed their ZoOm-enabled app in only three short weeks. The Turbi app, now downloaded over 100,000 times, authenticates Turbi customers using only their face to unlock one of its fleet cars. Since the user’s 3D face cannot be shared or stolen, Turbi determined that only 3D face authentication was secure enough for vehicle entry. Turbi’s app is a milestone in biometrics: there are no passwords, no PINs, and no second or multiple-factor authentication requirements.

“Turbi’s carsharing service is built on convenience, dependability, value and safety. To keep the experience safe from the start, we chose ZoOm to ensure only the right person has access to the right vehicle. The unmatched security, speed, simplicity and ease of management allows us to focus on growing our business,” said Diego Lira, Turbi CEO.”

More than just facial recognition, ZoOm 3D Face Login utilizes biometric data that cannot be captured and reproduced reliably with today’s media technology. Driven by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, the result is a biometric that cannot be phished and resists willful user fraud that is impossible to detect using legacy biometrics and password. ZoOm can be quickly and easily integrated into any iOS or Android app, and will soon be available for webcams for highly-secure access to banking, insurance, healthcare, and other confidential account data or physical entry without compromising user convenience, regardless of how they log in.

Developers can download the demo app by searching for “ZoOm Login” on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. The ZoOm developer SDK is available free at zoomlogin.com, with plugins for Xamarin, Appcelerator/Titanium, Phonegap, Cordova, Ionic and React Native. ZoOm is free for use in all educational and nonprofit apps globally, as well as for startups, developers and small businesses with less than 10M USD in annual revenue. For enterprise and government pricing, please contact Satya Yenigalla at Satya@FaceTec.com.

——————————-

About FaceTec

FaceTec’s patented human authentication software improves security and convenience with the most secure and intuitive 3D face biometric on the market. Now universally available for all smart mobile devices, and soon to be released for webcams, ZoOm leverages decades of Computer Vision, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning experience to ensure not only positive identification, but also three-dimensionality and human liveness.

ClaimsCapture™ Release Includes Artificial Intelligence, EDI 837 & Black-and-White Support

SEATTLE, April 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Claims processing automation specialist Paperless Productivity® has formally released its ClaimsCapture™ solution for automating data entry from CMS (HCFA/UB) claim forms. Engineered from the ground up by insurance and service bureau software veterans, ClaimsCapture applies state-of-the-art optical character recognition (OCR) technology to bypass the inherent limitations, errors, and costs of manual data entry.

Artificial Intelligence, OCR, Advanced Data Capture, EDI 837, CMS-1500, CMS-1450, HCFA, UB-04, Black and White, red drop out, original claim forms, dental claim, claimscapture, automated data entry, robotic process automation (PRNewsfoto/Paperless Productivity)

Paperless recently acquired the solution from a long-time partner, under its original name of WiseCLAIM. The rebranding and formal launch of ClaimsCapture follow updates to its most strategic features, including EDI 837 export, enhanced black-and-white form accuracy, multi-page claim compatibility, and duplicate claim detection.

According to Paperless’ Founder and President, Shamel Naguib, “ClaimsCapture is the first and only out-of-the-box option that fully resolves what payers, TPAs, and service bureaus grapple with every day. The name simply describes what our solution does best: capturing all data from all claims, providing our clients with automation and a tremendous amount of business intelligence.

“Looking forward, it goes without saying that accuracy is everything in this space, so it will always be our top priority at every step. We’re excited and confident to say that ClaimsCapture helps clients use and trust data from claim forms in a way nothing else can.”

While data capture accuracy is noticeable from day one, several other features have further secured ClaimsCapture’s long-term place in some of the nation’s most prominent health payers. EDI 837 output, black and white form capture or drop-out conversion, automated data validation with mathematical cross-checking, self-teaching capabilities, and even a built-in artificial intelligence (AI) “knowledge worker” are among the attributes that make ClaimsCapture an industry leader in performance and rapid return on investment alike.

To keep the solution accessible to firms of any size, ClaimsCapture offers high scalability, consumption-based pricing options, and straightforward integration with other enterprise workflow applications. Paperless estimates an implementation timeframe of two to six weeks, and expects an average client to recuperate its investment in approximately three to nine months thereafter.

Through OCR solutions, Cloud Fax, and RightFax fax server technology, Paperless consultants deliver scalable solutions for clients in healthcare, insurance, consumer finance, high- and low-tech manufacturing, government, and for other consultancy firms.
