AI vs Coronavirus- Tech leaders launch AI enabled open database of scientific articles to fight against COVID-19
Covid-19 has been spreading to over a hundred of locations internationally, including Asian, European and Gulf countries and the United States and an open Research Dataset, or CORD-19, was created in response to a request from the White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy.
Artificial Intelligence tools to organize more than 24,000 articles about the COVID-19 disease and the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that causes it. More than 70 researchers have contributed to this challenge. In particular, the latest daily download number has exceeded 2,000.
AI2’s researchers have been using tools such as machine learning and natural language processing to extract key features from research literature and help researchers find studies that are most relevant to problems they’re trying to solve.
The same researchers transformed all that content and more into machine-readable form, and created an adaptive feed that keeps users up to date on the research areas in which they’re most interested.
Scientists making use of the database can share the data mining tools and insights they develop in response to the CORD-19 call to action via the Kaggle data science community.
Artificial Intelligence community can help find answers to a key set of questions about COVID-19,” Anthony Goldbloom, Kaggle’s co-founder and CEO, said in a news release.
They are thanking each institution for voluntarily lending its expertise and innovation to this collaborative effort.
