Speaker information

Chris Mavergames, Head of Informatics & Knowledge Management, Cochrane Information and Knowledge Management Depa

The process of evidence synthesis in health care is cumbersome and rife with duplication of effort. From study identification through to data extraction, analysis, and publication/dissemination, use in guidelines and downstream products and decision-making, it is difficult for both researchers and systematic reviews, as well as the stakeholders they serve, to find and re-use data. Cochrane, the world’s leader in systematic review methods and production, has developed a framework and tools for better curation of evidence using linked data technologies, paired with machine learning and crowdsourcing, and smart tools for evidence synthesis, to move these efforts forward. Come to this seminar to find out more.
