Accelerating COVID‑19 Knowledge Synthesis w/ Machine Learning

Holmes, Kevin | $75,000

Ontario Algonquin College 2020 NSERC College COVID-19 Grant

The proposed project looks to accelerate the ability for evidence based knowledge synthesis of the rapidly

expanding COVID‑19 literature base. The ability to quickly inform the broader community of current state of

evidence is critical in the current pandemic environment. The project will enhance an existing validated

software platform for crowdsourcing systematic reviews (insightScope). The team will build an add-on tool

utilizing AI based machine learning techniques to allow for rapid assessment of emerging literature’s potential

impact on current evidence, best practices and treatment approaches.
