Moving forward by looking backward
UMSI assistant professor Eytan Adar has been selected to join a large team of academics and scientists from across the U.S. who are working to automatically detect emerging scientific and technical capabilities by analyzing vast collections of technical, patent, and scientific literature.
The team’s goal is to discover whether past patterns can point the way to future discoveries. This research is funded through an award from the Intelligence Advanced Projects Research Activity (IARPA) under its Foresight and Understanding from Scientific Exposition (FUSE) Program.
