Researchers at the University of Waterloo Cheriton School of Computer Science in Canada and New York University have developed a dedicated search engine for researchers fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
Neural Covidex supplies access to the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI)'s COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19), a publicly available, curated archive of roughly 45,000 scholarly articles, medical reports, journal articles, and preprints about COVID-19 and the coronavirus virus family.
Cheriton's Jimmy Lin channeled his expertise in building systems for extracting insights from text into creating natural language processing and information retrieval components for exploring the CORD-19 dataset.
Said Lin, "We're working hard to improve our system incrementally by leveraging the latest AI techniques."
