Discovering Undiscovered Public Knowledge with Influence Search

Mihai Surdeanu

Thesis Statement

There is a vast amount of scientific discovery that is scattered across the literature. Many insights from this research have gone undiscovered because fragments of independent but related knowledge have not been systematically retrieved, brought together, and interpreted. Influence mechanism provides a way to leverage the vast body of research and put these puzzle pieces together. This will help HBGDki understand what discoveries have been made, and better identify research gaps that need to be addressed.

This presentation was given during the Healthy Birth, Growth, and Development knowledge integration session at Grand Challenges 2017 in Washington, D.C.
