New product – powered by Springer Nature Mathematics – connects research video to the scientific knowledge ecosystem and workflows.
LONDON† June 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Cassyni, the platform for organizing, conducting and publishing research seminars, is launching a next-generation AI video product to enrich and extract knowledge from thousands of hours of research videos. Cassyni’s technology automatically converts unstructured research videos into structured searchable content with navigable chapters, high-quality transcripts, extracted slides from speaker presentations, and resolved references.
Andrew PrestonCassini Co-Founder said:
“Researchers don’t just read PDFs from start to finish, they jump through sections, search for keywords, track references, and research numbers. Right now, the only way to consume research videos is to watch them linearly from end to end or randomly through to find the right slide.
“Imagine being able to instantly do full-text searches on every slide and word of hundreds of thousands of hours of high-quality research video and recorded academic discussions. To be able to go back and instantly find the right slide from the 90-minute seminar you attended. To be able to click on a reference in the video and be directly linked to the publication, our technology makes all this possible, integrating video fully into the academic knowledge ecosystem.”
In addition to enriching the seminars in Cassyni’s library, the technology can be applied more widely.
Ben KaubéCassini Co-Founder said:
“Many research organizations, institutions and publishers sit on a wealth of high-quality research videos, including seminars and other recorded meetings that are of tremendous value to the research community. Cassyni’s technology makes this content discoverable and automatically links it to the wider literature.”
As part of a pilot with Springer Nature Mathematics, Cassyni will index and enrich video content from a series of meetings, including B Waves, Logica Universalis and the International Conference on Optimization and Decision Science.
Marc StraussPublishing Director at Springer Nature said:
“Cassini’s technology helps us unlock the value contained in existing video content shot at conferences and other virtual events. Cassyni’s indexing, extraction and linking of references makes it much easier and more engaging for researchers to find our content and dig deeper going into advanced research topics.”

Cassyni was launched in 2021 by the former founders of Mendeley, Publons and Kopernio. Our vision is to create a vibrant and connected ecosystem that enables millions of online and hybrid research seminars; help academics, institutions and journals expand their reach and maximize their impact in a green and inclusive way. To achieve this, we’ve developed a next-generation workflow platform for seminar organizers and are building the world’s largest open-access and fully searchable research seminar library.
