Symbolab Raises $1.2M for Mathematical Search Engine

Avishay Bassa of Newsgeek (translation by TheNextWeb) recently wrote, “Israeli start-up Symbolab, developer of a unique, mathematically geared search engine that can find and solve for complex mathematical equations, announced today the completion of a seed round of $1.2 million. The round was funded by several angels, including Michael Queen – former CEO of Harel Finance and Sprint Investment House, as well as other angels from the UK investment world. CEO, Michal Avny said, in an interview with Newsgeek, that the money raised in the current funding round will be used for further R&D of their technology, as well as to help finance the launch of a mobile application for smartphones and tablets in the near future.” Read more

Introducing Symbolab: Search for Equations

Smithsonian.com recently reported, “An Israeli-based startup has created what they think is the first semantic search engine designed specifically for scientific and mathematical equations. As Classroom Aid described, Symbolab allows users to search for equations using both numbers and symbols as well as text. The engine returns results based upon their relatedness to theory and semantics rather than visuals. The startup behind the technology, Eqsquest, said they wanted to make scientific content universally accessible by expanding its searchability. Unlike other search engines that are limited by language, Symbolab is scalable across cultures, since much of the equations found in science and math require no translation.” Read more
