The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked unprecedented mobilization of scientists, generating a deluge of papers that makes it hard for researchers to keep track and explore new directions. Search engines are designed for targeted queries, not for discovery of connections across a corpus. In this paper, we present SciSight, a system for exploratory search of COVID-19 research integrating two key capabilities: first, exploring associations between biomedical facets automatically extracted from papers… Expand
COVID-SEE: Scientific Evidence Explorer for COVID-19 Related Research
TLDR
COVID-SEE augments search by providing a visual overview supporting exploration of a collection to identify key articles of interest, and builds on several distinct text analysis and natural language processing methods to structure and organise information in publications. Expand
Exploration and Discovery of the COVID-19 Literature through Semantic Visualization
TLDR
In the user studies, users found that semantic visualization-powered COVID-SemViz is helpful in terms of finding relevant information and discovering unknown associations. Expand
Artificial Intelligence-Powered Search Tools and Resources in the Fight Against COVID-19
TLDR
This paper explores three prominent initiatives: COVID-19 focused datasets (e.g., CORD-19); Artificial intelligence-powered search tools ( e.g, WellAI, SciSight); and contact tracing based on mobile communication technology. Expand
Deep Learning applications for COVID-19
TLDR
This survey explores how Deep Learning has battled the CO VID-19 pandemic and provides directions for future research on COVID-19, and evaluates the current state of Deep Learning and concludes with key limitations of Deep learning for COvid-19 applications. Expand
BIP4COVID19: Releasing impact measures for articles relevant to COVID-19
Since the beginning of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic, a large number of relevant articles has been published or become available in preprint servers. These articles, along with earlier relatedExpand
A Search Engine for Discovery of Scientific Challenges and Directions
TLDR
A novel task of extraction and search of scientific challenges and directions, to facilitate rapid knowledge discovery on a large corpus of interdisciplinary work relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, ranging from biomedicine to areas such as AI and economics. Expand
A Comprehensive Review on Artificial Intelligence Techniques for Covid-19 Pandemic
The pandemic situation due to the emergence of Covid-19 presents various problems physically, economically and mentally for the individuals world-wide, therefore faster solutions with wider access isExpand
A Search Engine for Discovery of Biomedical Challenges and Directions
TLDR
This work constructs and releases an expert-annotated corpus of texts sampled from full-length papers, labeled with novel semantic categories that generalize across many types of challenges and directions, and applies a model trained on the data to identify challenges and Directions across the corpus and builds a dedicated search engine. Expand
A Study of Explainability Features to Scrutinize Faceted Filtering Results
TLDR
A crowdsourced study involving 200 participants found that both explainability features had a positive impact on participants' perceptions and performance, and the sentence-highlighting feature played a more instrumental role in enabling participants to reject false positive cases. Expand
Accelerating COVID-19 research with graph mining and transformer-based learning
TLDR
An automated general purpose hypothesis generation systems AGATHA-C and AGatHA-GP, based on graph-mining and the transformer model, are presented and it is shown that the systems are able to discover on-going research findings such as the relationship between COVID-19 and oxytocin hormone. Expand

Extracting PICO Sentences from Clinical Trial Reports using Supervised Distant Supervision
TLDR
A novel method is proposed that uses a small amount of direct supervision to better exploit a large corpus of distantly labeled instances by learning to pseudo-annotate articles using the available DS and it is shown that this approach tends to outperform existing methods with respect to automated PICO extraction.

Baricitinib as potential treatment for 2019-nCoV acute respiratory disease
TLDR
It is suggested that baricitinib could be trialled, using an appropriate patient population with 2019-nCoV acute respiratory disease, to reduce both the viral entry and the inflammation in patients, using endpoints such as the MuLBSTA score, an early warning model for predicting mortality in viral pneumonia.

Utilization of the PICO framework to improve searching PubMed for clinical questions
TLDR
There was a trend towards higher precision that needs to be investigated in a larger study to determine if PICO can improve the relevancy of search results, and this pilot study could not demonstrate a statistically significant difference between the search protocols. Expand
