What is aiolas?

a​iolas is an ai-powered direct question search. It has indexed the entire NAFEMS resource centre, so you could say it knows everything that has ever been produced by NAFEMS, or at any NAFEMS event.

You can ask aiolas direct questions, and it will give you a direct answer, subject to the context provided. More than that, you'll also get links to the NAFEMS resource that the answers came from, allowing you to access the sources directly.

N​AFEMS is hosting aiolas as an experiment, scheduled to run until April 2024.
