Sorry, this event has now ended.

Speaker: Dr Goran Nenadic

Large amounts scientific literature are available in many disciplines - for example, there is a new biomedical paper published every 2 minutes. Text mining software can extract and link specific events and facts from the literature, but what else can computers learn from scientific papers? Can they learn which methodologies are hot and which are not? Can they predict what's the next big thing going to be? Can they learn how to write a paper that will be highly regarded by the scientific community? In this session, Dr Goran Nenadic will illustrate some ideas in the domains of bioinformatics and clinical sciences.
