Transinsight’s GoPubMed with Social Networking Features for Biomedical Experts
GoPubMed now allows users to identify experts in the biomedical field and gain important information on recent research topics by viewing their networks
"Some author names like Lee S., Smith J. and Müller C. appear over 20,000 times! We have solved the technical challenge of disambiguating the authors into single individuals with our semantic search technology, which in a way functions like the network of the brain", says Prof. Dr. Michael Schroeder, CSO and co-founder of Transinsight. If two articles share the same author, GoPubMed evaluates their similar properties. The system hereby takes into account that the author of each paper often publishes about similar research topics, with the same co-authors and in the same journals. The research topics are thereby connected to the concepts of the semantic network in the background. The more concepts two articles have in common and the shorter the semantic distance in the network is, the more likely it is that the articles were written by the same person. This approach leads to impressive accuracy. If at any point the system is not correct, it can be corrected by the users.
"GoPubMed is an essential step in significantly easing the finding of complexly networked information", according to Prof. Dr. Michael Brand, Director of the BioInnovation Center in Dresden. "The semantic approach is unparalleled worldwide, and I’m excited that such a development, which would be expected to come from Palo Alto’s Stanford University in the Silicon Valley in California, today comes instead from Dresden," says Brand.
