Research and development
2Dsearch is the product of an R&D program combining novel techniques from the fields of data visualization, artificial intelligence and natural language processing. We are proud to have been awarded multiple grants for research and development from Innovate UK. We work closely with the academic community, and have ongoing collaborations with Essex University, Glasgow University and City University London. A selection of recent scholarly papers is shown below.
