Azthena: Empowering Scientists with Commercial Science Answers

Artificial Intelligence is revolutionizing the science industry by transforming the way scientists conduct research and make discoveries. With advancements in (AI) over the last two decades, machines are now capable of imitating human behavior and performing human-like tasks. AI, when combined with machine learning and data analytics, can process various types of data, including digital information, images, text, and unstructured data. This has enabled AZoNetwork to develop Azthena, an AI-powered chatbot that can analyze and interpret vast amounts of data more efficiently and accurately, giving scientists trusted answers to their commercial scientific questions.

Watch our CEO Ian Birkby discuss Azthena’s journey from idea to beta, and his thoughts on the current AI landscape.

How does Azthena help?

Our mission is to assist scientists in finding answers to their commercial science questions. With our expert knowledge and access to 20+ years of editorially reviewed content published by AZoNetwork, we can provide valuable insights and information to researchers, engineers, and scientists across 12 subject-specific sites publishing content daily.

Scientists often encounter complex challenges in their pursuit of knowledge and innovation. They require reliable and accurate information to make informed decisions and drive their research forward. This is where we come in. By leveraging the extensive resources available on, we can help scientists navigate through the vast sea of scientific knowledge and find the answers they need.

Azthena Use Cases

AZoNetwork’s history started with, known as the "A to Z of Materials," to educate engineers, designers, and scientists about materials. Over time, it has significantly expanded its coverage to include different scientific subject areas, encompassing more than 140 clearly defined topics. AZoNetwork's commitment to open-access content has enabled the free dissemination of scientific information, contributing to the education of a global audience in various scientific disciplines.

Azthena has access to and operates based on that wealth of content, and is expected to have a wide range of use cases, from general scientific questions to specific product-related inquiries.

One of the key ways we assist scientists is by providing access to the latest advancements in nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is a rapidly evolving field with immense potential for various applications, ranging from electronics and medicine to energy and materials science. By staying up-to-date with the latest research and developments in nanotechnology, we help scientists explore new possibilities and make breakthroughs in their respective fields.

Materials science is another area where we can provide valuable assistance. From advanced materials with unique properties to cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, materials science plays a crucial role in numerous industries. Whether scientists are looking for information on the latest materials or seeking guidance on material selection for specific applications, we can help them find the answers they need.

In addition to nanotechnology and materials science, we have expertise in other scientific domains such as mining, quantum physics, robotics, sensors, clean technologies, optics, life science, medical science, and artificial intelligence. This broad knowledge base allows us to address a wide range of commercial science questions and provide comprehensive and accurate answers.

When scientists approach us with a query, we analyze the question and search through the relevant content published by AZoNetwork. By utilizing the information available in the articles, news, and whitepapers, we can extract the most relevant and accurate information to address the question at hand.

Our goal is to provide scientists with the information they need to make informed decisions and drive their research forward. By empowering scientists with commercial science answers, we aim to contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge and innovation.

When conceptualizing Azthena, we also noticed that researchers often face a daunting challenge: How do they ensure that their valuable insights and findings don't get lost in the shuffle of conferences and exhibitions?

The platform recognizes the plight of scientists who, after putting their expertise on display at conferences and exhibitions, often see their research vanish into the abyss of poster sessions. It's a valid concern. How many people truly engage with these research displays?

This is where and Azthena step in, offering an innovative solution to bridge this gap. We encourage scientists, including PhD students, to not only showcase their research but also think about the next steps. We believe in the power of leveraging scientific information beyond the initial presentation.

You can try Azthena out now and give us feedback. We put a focus on the scientific community and your feedback is important to us. If Azthena can’t find the answer to your question, or you have content on that topic that helps answer the scientific question, please let us know via the feedback tool or contact us. We will be happy to help amplify your science and share your research for the benefit of the whole scientific community.
