Goals of the Project
Create a way of automatically extracting candidates for scientific equipment terms from scientific papers. Corpus we will use to start with: https://github.com/petermr/CEVOpen (a corpus of papers about phytochemistry). Contributors: Sabine, Wambui, Michael; working name of the tool SaWaMine
Create a user interface that would do the following: Display the paragraph/paper from which the SaWaMine tool extracted candidates of scientific equipment, show a list of the candidates, user can then click the ones that are actually equipment; Contributors: Sophia, Wambui
Use the list from Sophia with scientific equipment (supplemented by whatever SaWaMine will give us) to find out what kind of scientific equipment the papers in the CEVOpen corpus used. If possible, add the terms to Wikidata. Can then also be applied to other corpora. Contributors: Leonie and Peter
Long term goal: Connect those SaWaMine tool and the UI so they work together (similar to Appstract).
