Hi all, we are having a Hackathon while at the ESWC.
May 27 in Montpillier, France.
The ability to extract meaningful, machine-interpretable data from
scholarly publications in PDF form is a big challenge. Several open
source libraries exist that attempt to automate this process, but work
needs to be done on them to improve accuracy and reliability. Some
specific and relevant challenges include:
Ability to automatically identify and tokenize citations from the PDF
(or more accurately, from a string of text)
Ability to automatically identify those blocks of text that represent
the narrative in a PDF.
Ability to identify references within the narrative, extract their
scope, and associate them with citation information in the PDF.
Anybody interested is welcome to join us, http://scholrev.org/hackathon/
