How Corona is changing science

The flood of information about the COVID-19 pandemic is overwhelming. But which sources are relevant? Researcher Giovanni Colavizza uses artificial intelligence to bring structure into the science related to COVID-19.

This blog post on the website of the Institute of Logic, Language and Computation at University of Amsterdam explains Giovanni Colavizza’s previous COVID-19 related work. He applied natural language processing and clustering techniques to organize all scientific literature that is broadly related to COVID-19 into a term map.

This previous project was focussed on how researchers communicate with each other in times of the pandemic using scientific publications. In that sense, it nicely complements our current project, which investigates the way scientists communciate with the public.
