Conceptionary's Auto-dictionary

The Auto-dictionary is a prototype that detects uncommon words in a text and then uses a dictionary to explain them. Future prototypes will use more resources than a dictionary to explain more complex questions. Check back next month to see what else we've built!

Example: "Doctors often use toxicology to diagnose potential poisonings."
