Verizon has launched open-source, big data coronavirus search engine to help medical professionals and researchers find COVID-19 data without having the need to build their own search back-end technology. This engine works on top of the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19).
Company developers built the open-source search engine using Vespa. Vespa is Verizon Media’s technology which processes tons of data. Verizon Media has used Vespa to index more than 44,000 COVID-19-related articles by keyword. This has been done so that researchers can easily find the information they need. This search engine is open to anyone.
Text and data-mining approaches
The CORD-19 built by Verizon Media developers represents an extensive machine-readable coronavirus literature collection. It has been made available for data mining. This will allow the global AI research community an opportunity to apply text and data-mining approaches to support the COVID-19 response efforts worldwide
