AIC Seminar Series
Automated Aides for Generating Scientific Insights

Location: EJ228 (SRI E building) (Directions)
The profusion of high-throughput instruments and the explosion of new results in the scientific literature, particularly in molecular biomedicine, is both a blessing and a curse to the bench researcher. Even knowledgable and experienced scientists can benefit from computational tools that help navigate this vast and rapidly evolving terrain. However, effective design and implementation of
computational tools that genuinely facilitate the generation of novel and significant scientific insights remains poorly understood. In this talk, I will describe a set of efforts that combines natural
language processing for information extraction and graphical network models for semantic data integration into a system that has recently played a pivotal role in making a significant discovery,
and also discuss how it might be possible to compare and evaluate such systems.
Please arrive at least 10 minutes early as you will need to sign in by
following instructions by the lobby phone at Building E (or call Wilma
Lenz at 650 859 4904, or Vicenta at Lopez at 650 859 5750). SRI is
located at 333 Ravenswood Avenue in Menlo Park. Visitors may park in the
parking lots off Fourth Street. Detailed directions to SRI, as well as maps,
are available from the Visiting AIC web page.
There are two entrances to SRI International located on Ravenswood Ave.
Please check the Building E entrance signage.
