Gathering information for research shouldn’t be like assembling a puzzle where each piece is a different data source. With information coming from online news articles, research papers, videos, and even internal documents, the process of collecting data is a massive source of inefficiency.
The speed at which information is updated is constantly increasing, rendering data that has been previously gathered to be quickly outdated. As a result, the information needs to be renewed and the data collection process conducted all over again.
Lastly, extracting all of the information from the different data sources is a time-consuming and manual task that requires reading hundreds of articles and papers. This often results in information overload and lower retention rates which add to the inefficiencies associated with traditional research processes.
