  • Transcript

    • 1. Darrell W. Gunter, EVP / Chief Marketing Officer Collexis Holdings, Inc. April 30, 2009 How The Semantic Web Hype Has Turned Into A Reality
    • 2. Creating fingerprints from documents using semantic technologies
    • 3. Resolves linguistic ‘challenges’
      • Stemming, lemmatization and Normalizing
          • Plural  singular e.g.: Diseases  disease
          • Past  present e.g.: Treated  treat
      • Multi-lingual
          • Gripe  Griep  Influenza
      • Synonyms
          • Earth  Globe
      • Disambiguation of homonyms
          • Jaguar ? Car or Animal
      • Abbreviations
          • SARS  Severa Acute Respetory Syndrom (SARS)
          • Long Form  Short Form
      • Phrases: meaningful & coherent utterances
          • e.g. blackwater fever
    • 4. Explore instead of Searching!
    • 5. Creating expert profiles from documents using semantic technologies
      • Document fingerprints aggregated to expert profiles!
    • 6. Conceptual Search & Visualization!
    • 7. Concept & Publications View
    • 8. Concept & Author View
    • 9. Emerging Trends by Key Concepts
    • 10. Potential Co-occurrence of Concepts Hypothesis Generation!
    • 11. Semantic Web Hype Into Reality
      • Our Focus Today
      • Social networking functionalities for the STM industry
    • 12. STM Products and Processes Publisher
    • 13. The STM Consumer Producer Author of a book Member of a STM society Author of journal articles Receiving research funding Consumer & reader Peer reviewer Participant & speaker at conferences Taking advantage of continuous education Member of an editorial board
    • 14. Consumer/ Producer Process Researcher Funding through an STM society Consuming literature and STM products Participation in the publishing process as a peer reviewer Participation in various conferences Presenting results in varoius conferences/ Publishing of proceedings Publication of results in peer reviewed STM journal
    • 15. Science as a collaborative effort! As an STM Publisher...
      • How to support a researcher in the area of collaboration and networking?
      • How to support a researcher in finding potential collaborators in interdisciplinary areas?
      • How to allow the researcher to effectively manage his network of collaborators?
      • How to support the researcher in reaching out to the group of researchers working on the same research question?
    • 16. Publishers, Societies and traditional networking I
      • In the past, networking between reseachers has taken place mostly
        • at conferences
        • in the context of societies
      • The new social networking wave using semantic technologies is about to cannibalize this form of networking with new generations of scientists entering the scene
    • 17. Publishers, Societies and traditional networking II
      • Are scientists well served with platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook and MySpace?
      • Not really as these platforms are not specific for their work
      • However the content / STM products can be used to establish pre-populated social networks – supporting very specifically the needs of the target group
    • 18. Smith, Taylor and Foster – the disambiguation challenge
      • Before you can suggest collaborators etc. you need to know you experts – which is sometimes challenging
      • Disambiguation of authors is a crucial success factor for pre-populated social networks
      • Collexis has developed a sophisticated process to achieve this - and has applied it to PubMed
      • Using PubMed as a source Collexis has created 1.8 million disambiguated expert profiles in a free social networking site
    • 19. Ingredients for a pre-populated STM Network
      • Users / experts
      • Relations between users
      • Common interest area to make it interesting to join
      • Possibility to solve technical challenges like author disambiguation
      • That‘s it!
      Authors... Co-authorship, affiliation... Society, journal... Problem solved... Pre-populated social networks – turning content into communities!
    • 20.  
    • 21.
      • Co-author based networks
    • 22.
      • Geographical
      • mapping of the
      • co-author network
    • 23. Same data for sub networks
    • 24. Government Research Institutions
    • 25. Consortiums i.e. NIH CTSA
    • 26. ...or for peer reviewer identification
    • 27. Creating STM sub-networks
      • Having a researcher to join 25 different networks?
      • Should the user related information be spread out over 25 different social networks?
      • With BiomedExperts an "Umbrella Network"is available, where complete and disambiguated profiles are maintained – ready to be integrated into customized special interest networks on a topic level, society or publisher level
      • One profile, one login, many networks!
    • 28. STM Subnetworks – ready to go today! Sub network for a society Sub network for a journal Reviewer assignment Sub network of all author of one publisher Virtual conferences - network of participants Network of funded researchers
    • 29. The Use of Semantic Technologies
      • ... Is making these networks and services possible – not theoretically, already in reality... Which means that the
      • "Semantic hype has turned into reality!"
    • 30. Thank you for your attention!
