The science-checker.opscidia.com is now publicly available.
Funded in 2020/21 – The Science Checker project built a free to access search engine, developing a novel approach that verifies scientific claims by means of analysing the pertinent and available scientific literature.
In the words of the developers the Science Checker:
– facilitates access and exploration of scientific literature.
– illustrates the need to analyze several studies in order to get a better idea of the state of scientific knowledge on a subject.
– illustrates that Open Access, combined with the right artificial intelligence tools, can facilitate the transmission of knowledge outside the academic world.
The grant was awarded to Opscidia, a startup which develops artificial intelligence tools that make use of open access articles to accelerate innovation, promote sound policies and help providing rigorous information to the general public.
