    Speaker: Paul Groth, Elsevier Labs


    Series: Artificial Intelligence Seminar

    Abstract: Paul is coauthor of Provenance: an Introduction to PROV and The Semantic Web Primer: 3rd Edition as well as numerous academic articles.

    Robotic Labs, in which experiments are carried out entirely by robots, have the potential to provide a reproducible and transparent foundation for performing basic biomedical laboratory experiments. I discuss our recent work that uses text mining and qualitative analysis to provide indicators for that potential. I discuss some of the challenges faced in methods extraction that arise from this work . I will also sketch our thinking on the future of Science as a Service and the important role of AI will play it.

    There will also be a chance at a prize.
