The Register: Here’s a search engine for all you boffins and eggheads that makes it easier to learn science. “The whole search engine is built from a knowledge base. Researchers and engineers built tools to like Science Parse, to automatically extract metadata from the PDF files of papers to take the titles, author information, abstract, and references and adds it onto Semantic Scholar. DeepFigures takes all the useful graphs and tables in the paper. The new features include a column on the right hand side charting the paper’s impact. Natural language processing is used to search for keywords linked to the article to see how often it has been cited by other researchers or discussed on mentioned in Twitter discussions.”
