ContentMine Instructor Bios
Thomas Arrow: Tom trained as a chemist while always retaining a strong personal interest in computers, programming and Free Open Source Software. These interests gradually combined as he started wanting to use computers not just for open source software but also open science, scholarly works, sharing knowledge. He's a volunteer developer with Wikimedia and has a particular affinity for Wikidata.
Stefan Kasberger: I am a freelance data scientist, training manager and web-developer. Besides I am chairman of Open Knowledge Austria and am studying environmental systems science with focus on geography. I am 33 years old, and am doing research in the field of social computational science. My main focus there is network analysis and geo-spatial analysis. Website
ContentMine is developing open source tools for mining scholarly and research literature. These tools support research on specific topics and exploratory data analysis. “Our software stack provides tools for getting papers from many online sources, normalising them, then processing them to lookup and/or search for key terms, phrases, patterns, statements, and more. The stream of facts is available in a standardized, easy-to-reuse way and that makes it share-able.”
