Digital Science, a technology company serving emergent needs across the research sector, has announced a partnership with Beijing-based technology company Zhipu.AI to conduct data challenges and collaborate in building a COVID-19 information portal.
Zhipu.AI, a spin-out from Tsinghua University, aims to build an advanced artificial intelligence engine that can support and empower the research and innovation sectors globally. The company focuses on solving the current challenges of research organisations and government agencies, by using its extensive experience in analysing large-scale complex networks, deep semantic mining and leveraging innovative techniques with cognitive graphs.
This strategic collaboration makes the companies work together on a broad range of projects over the next several years. Some of the existing opportunities planned for the collaboration include joint hosting of a new set of data challenges centred around scholarly communications problems such as name disambiguation; and bringing together advanced analysis tools from both companies to create deeper insights for the sector. Collaboration will be a central theme of the new relationship and will make Digital Science’s Overleaf more seamlessly available to more Chinese users, enabling them to create, edit and publish their research all from one browser using the real-time collaborative LaTeX editor.
This partnership comes at a critical time with the global threat posed by COVID-19. Both teams will work together to ensure that both English and Chinese-language information is as widely shared as possible by providing a COVID-19 information portal with all related publications, datasets and clinical trials exported into a google sheet and hosted on Digital Science’s Figshare, as well as a dedicated website (https://covid-19.aminer.cn/). The google sheet and the website will be updated daily pulling all relevant content on COVID-19 from Digital Science’s Dimensions platform, to make sharing and distributing this research information easier.
