Project main description
Systematic reviews (SR) are the ultimate evidence summaries for evidence based practice. Unfortunately, SR are extremely expensive to produce, take around 2 years to create, and remain current only for a little time when the process has to be repeated. The SR production process can be broken down to 15 steps, each with its own information needs that can be automated. Our primary focus is on the integration of information from specialized tools aimed to automate various steps, and on extraction of information from text.
