Zhao’s presentation, “Scholarly Big Data: Computational Approaches to Semantic Labeling in Materials Science,” is from research she is conducting in collaboration with team members: the NSF supported Harnessing the Data Revolution (HDR) initiative, Accelerating the Discovery of Electronic Materials through Human-Computer Active Search. Zhao’s research examines computation and semantic labeling for scholarly big data in materials science. She reported on a baseline comparative analysis she led, comparing the ontology-based automatic indexing with the Helping Interdisciplinary Vocabulary Engineering (HIVE-4-MAT) application and the MATScholar system, which uses named entity recognition (NER), supported by an RNN (Recursive Neural Network).
