Open Science Meetup: Content Mining w/ Peter Murray-Rust


Content Mine
How to extract information out of scientific publications? Together we will dig a little bit deeper into this hot topic on June 5th, with Open Science pioneer Peter Murray-Rust as special guest.

Content mining is highly topical, in research as much as in business. So we are very happy to have Peter Murray-Rust, actual Shuttleworth Fellow and Co-Founder of the Open Science Working Group of the Open Knowledge Foundation, as guest for our sixth Open Science Working Group MeetUp of the Open Knowledge Foundation Austria. He will talk about his recent activites around contentmine, a project which tries to use machines to liberate 100,000,000 facts from the scientific literature.
