Atypon's Artificial Intelligence R&D awarded four BioASQ Awards in semantic technology categories
- 22 Feb 2018

Atypon has been placed in the widely respected International BioASQ Awards competition for the fifth year in a row. Atypon's ongoing research and development (R&D) into artificial intelligence technologies led to four awards for four different semantic technology categories in the 2017 BioASQ Challenge.

BioASQ organises international contests in biomedical semantic indexing and question answering (QA) to help advance technologies that make it faster and easier for researchers to find the most relevant and actionable information from within the vast corpus of published biomedical research.

Atypon's R&D in machine learning and natural language processing-two branches of artificial intelligence-contributed to their award-winning semantic technologies. The R&D team's work in the areas of recommender systems and knowledge representation-specifically, entity recognition, entity extraction, semantic search, search augmentation, and publication knowledge graphs-is also expanding the search and discovery capabilities of Literatum, the company's online publishing platform.

Entity recognition, a type of semantic enrichment, uses deep inference and reasoning to improve the accuracy, speed, and ease with which content can be automatically assessed and classified.

Entity extraction, another type of semantic enrichment, will be used to automatically add funding and grant information to enrich an article's metadata, as well as to individuate compound figures and then match them with their captions and other associated content.

Semantic search, a type of search augmentation, will enable Literatum users to ask natural-language questions rather than search by keyword. Publication knowledge graphs that make use of knowledge representation technology will improve individualised content recommendations and predict trending research topics.

Previous AI-related innovations from Atypon's R&D team are already featured in Literatum, including an auto-tagger that helps personalise Literatum search results and auto-populate topic-specific web pages with relevant content, search augmentation algorithms that rank and organise results according to each user's interests, and automated topic modeling that analyzes a set of documents, determines their subject matter, and instantly assigns tags that characterize each topic.

All of these Literatum features make valuable content and information easier to find and monetize, and create a more productive, convenient research experience.

Atypon's BioASQ team was joined by professors from Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece, a research institution that Atypon works closely with on projects combining machine learning, natural language processing, and other applied software technologies.

The 17th Annual Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences announced
- 21 Feb 2018

The Wiley Foundation has announced that the seventeenth annual Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences will be awarded to Lynne E. Maquat for elucidating the mechanism of nonsense-mediated messenger RNA decay, a fundamental process whereby cells remove defective transcripts that can encode toxic proteins.

Dr. Maquat is a Professor at the Department of Biochemistry&Biophysics in the School of Medicine and Dentistry, the Founding Director of the Center for RNA Biology: From Genome to Therapeutics, the Founding Chair of the University of Rochester Graduate Women in Science, and the J. Lowell Orbison Endowed Chair at the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York.

First awarded in 2002, The Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences is presented annually to recognise contributions that have opened new fields of research or have advanced concepts in a particular biomedical discipline. Among the many distinguished recipients of the Wiley Prize in Biomedical Sciences, nine have gone on to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine and two have gone on to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

The award of $50,000 will be presented to the winner on April 13, 2018 at the Wiley Prize luncheon at The Rockefeller University. The winner will then deliver an honorary lecture as part of The Rockefeller University Lecture Series. This event will be live streamed via the Current Protocols' Webinar Series and registration is free.
