Getting Biologists to (Willingly) Do the Work of a Thousand Annotators

Shannon Bradshaw and Marc Light

Biologists read large quantities of scientific literature. Their knowledge synthesis process involves extracting tables of facts, important passages, lists of relevant elements, etc. We describe the Machete system, now in development, that can both help the biologist extract such information and capture what has been extracted. In the process, Machete provides a means of curating scientific knowledge for a community of researchers with little or no addition effort.
