Promise in automated reasoning, hypothesis generation over complete medical literature

25 agosto 2014

With approximately 50 million scientific papers available in public databases — and a new one publishing nearly every 30 seconds — scientists cannot know about every relevant study when they are deciding where to take their research next. A new tool in development by computational biologists and analytics experts tested as a ‘proof-of-principle’ may one day help researchers mine all public medical literature and formulate hypotheses that promise the greatest reward when pursuing new scientific studies.
