Epistemonikos on the Evidence Synthesis Hackathon Canberra
Our co-founder Daniel Pérez and L·OVE Project Leader, Juan Vásquez, participated in the second version of the Evidence Synthesis Hackathon 2019, held in Canberra, Australia, between the 8th and the 10th of April just passed.
The meeting reunited developers and professionals related to scientific evidence from different areas such as education, health, social sciences or environment.
Our representatives participated in various open development projects, such as a new Search engine, developed by Daniel Pérez as a tool to expand access to search terms and, thus, give efficiency to the process of generating Boolean strategies when preparing Systematic Reviews.
Likewise, Daniel worked on improving the accessibility of the Open Academic Graph data, making available the contents (often very heavy to be handled in a normal computer) in a public online database, allowing access to that information No need for space or download.
Like the previous year, Epistemonikos was a part of this initiative whose realization seeks to show the state of the art of technological tools for scientific evidence, as well as reuniting those who work with this objective around the world.
