Riffyn Sponsors ResourceMiner, an Open Science Project with PLOS and Mozilla Science Lab
Resource Miner is an open project to develop a natural language processing toolkit for extracting controlled vocabularies (ontologies) of research resources used in the scientific literature, and organizing them into an associative knowledge graph. Riffyn has sponsored this project in collaboration with PLoS and Mozilla Science Lab. The Mozilla Science Lab helps a global network of researchers, tool developers, librarians and publishers collaborate to further science on the web.
