Frase’s Research Assistant Ends the Need for Writers to Keep a Million Tabs Open

Frase's Research Assistant Ends the Need for Writers to Keep a Million Tabs Open. twitter For modern writers, a challenge many of us face is the need to constantly switch between our word processor and the dozens of browser tabs we keep open for research purposes. With the word processor's "explore" button in the lower-right corner, you can find related research topics and articles based on what you're writing. While many of us may still have to look for a better solution, content marketers will soon have one. The solution is called Frase, a new Boston startup that has developed what it's calling a "real-time research assistant for content marketers and teams." But it's really a word processor with an artificial intelligence-powered research assistant inside. The startup raised $200,000 seed round earlier this year from four angel investors, Tomas Ratia, one of the company's co-founders told BostInno, and it's currently working out of Dat Ventures, a Boston-based accelerator for international startups that has recently transformed into a coworking space for AI startups. Then, using machine learning, Frase finds news stories and other online items from a variety sources based on those topics and identities, and they can appear in a panel next to what you're typing or in a separate feed to help you brainstorm future blog post ideas. In a statement provided by Ratia, Mesh co-founder Bill Schick said Frase helps its employees with creating high-quality, long-form content. Another important aspect of Frase, Schick added, is how it lets the agency scale its research efforts: "We learn from what we've created and are able to automate some research tasks" and draw key insights.

Google Documents currently has what I’d call a halfway solution. With the word processor’s “explore” button in the lower-right corner, you can find related research topics and articles based on what you’re writing. Problem is, if you click on any of the articles that appear in that panel, they open in another tab.
