Changing How We Do Science Through Natural Language Processing

Imagine you're a cancer researcher. The literature corpus is vast and expanding every day, and though current searchable databases may contain the studies that fit your experimental parameters, you still need to find and read the relevant papers and evaluate their findings to see if they would fit your mode. What would help you tremendously — and speed up the rate at which cancer research in general is accomplished — would be a program that could not only scan papers for your search terms, but could also extract the results of each study and clearly communicate them to you. This is happening now at Carnegie Mellon.
