The latest AI based tools contribute greatly to the research process, particularly at the stages of resource search, discovery and evaluation. Using computational semantics, machine learning and graph theory facilitates the extraction of entities and concepts to create a detailed semantic profile of any item of content.

PhD candidates, as a part of their initial literature search and periodically throughout the writing process, are required to compare the developing body of data on their dissertation topic with a large body of published research, both to avoid duplication and to retrieve resources pertinent to their topic. Over the course of their investigations, a detailed semantic fingerprint of their research begins to emerge.

This panel presents how AI technology can support the comparison of this semantic fingerprint to the latest research publications, streamline the process, and enhance research outcomes and presents a case study on student use.

Join Mark Kubinec, Director Digital Chemistry Project, UC Berkeley, Philip Schreur, AUL, Stanford University, and Ruth Pickering, Co-Founder, Yewno, to hear about this exciting use of AI to enhance the research process.

Associate University Librarian for Technical and Access Services, Stanford University
Currently, I am most interested in the transition of traditional Technical Services workflows from MARC-based to linked data-based counterparts. I feel that we will be living in a hybrid environment (MARC/linked data) for quite some time and that we will need to carefully assess which... Read More →
