About

Academic papers and dissertations are practically impossible to read for all except experts. Keeping the world's most cutting edge knowledge out of reach of innovators and ordinary people reduces human advancement.PaperTurtle attempts to remedy this by finding concepts in a paper provided to it and producing a knowledge tree of what needs to be learned to understand it. It aids the user in this by providing links to Wikipedia, Khan academy and Youtube for them to self-educate.It finds concepts using the HOD concept extraction API before cross-referencing them with a Wikipedia article that is found using the title of the paper. These concepts are then put up alongside the paper for the user to explore. The user can also explore founding concepts which we get through doing clever things with links.The app also provides a summary of the paper to the user, to enable faster digesting of content.
