Natural Language Processing to explore Covid-19 literature

By Julie Vranken on 15 April 2020

Due to the rapid acceleration in new coronavirus literature, it becomes difficult for the medical research community to keep up. There is a growing urgency for innovative approaches, like recent advances in Natural Language Processing, to understand and analyze the abundance of medical/scientific articles.

At AE, we created a powerful Natural Language Processing engine that allows us to perform recent text and data mining techniques (which, by the way, also forms the foundation of our AI Powered Customer Care Agent, ADORE). With both the expertise and motivation in place to help researchers find answers that will ultimately help them stop the virus, we composed a team of data scientists to start working on the Kaggle COVID-19 Open Research Dataset Challenge.
