Search and chat with over 51,000 scholarly articles, including over 40,000 with full text, about COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, and related coronaviruses — all sourced from Kaggle.
COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19)
The coronavirus has brought the world to its knees. With the whole world going through uncertain times, scientists and researchers across the globe are trying to put in all their effort and talent to win the war against the virus.
With the help of artificial intelligence-based tools, around 51,000 scientific papers and research articles that are focused on COVID-19 and coronavirus have been made available to the public. These datasets and journals will help the medical community to understand the virus better. The world is currently relying on AI-based tools to get vital clues on how to combat the virus. The dataset will be researched and put to a machine-readable format using natural language processing. This comprehensive dataset can provide answers to questions. It will also show what research has been done in this field earlier. It has been compiled into a dataset named COVID -19 Open Research Dataset or (Cord-19). It is hosted by Kaggle, which in turn, will get the AI experts to develop tools to go through this extensive research as it would be manually impossible to go through 51,000 articles.
With the aid of powerful enterprise search and AI chatbots, it is hopeful that answers can be found to crucial questions regarding COVID-19. This information will help the medical community to get all the necessary information they require to combat the virus, find out how it spreads, and also to develop a potential vaccine.
SearchBlox has joined in this collaborative venture, and the whole tech community is hopeful that machine learning can provide an accelerated solution. The White House has taken the initiative and garnered the help of tech companies to lend their expertise and make use of AI technology to answer scientific questions about the virus after scanning the massive volume of 51,000 articles. Kaggle, which is a Google-owned hub for data science, has launched COVID-19 Open Research Dataset Challenge to the artificial intelligence experts of the world to develop text and tools to assist the medical community in developing answers to scientific questions. The findings should be concise and specific. The Cord-19 challenge is distinct as it aims to search for information about the coronavirus.
There is a ray of hope that collaborative efforts of the tech community will bear fruit and work hand in hand with the medical community to find a cure for the coronavirus and bring back the world, which is currently in lockdown mode to normal mode.
