ASKE: Automating Scientific Knowledge Extraction

Project Lead:  Dr. Joshua Elliott                                                            

Sponsoring Organization:  DARPA


Project Synopsis:  ASKE seeks to develop technology to automate some of the manual processes of scientific knowledge discovery, curation and application. The goal is to develop approaches that make it easier for scientists to build, maintain and reason over rich models of complex systems, including physical, biological, social, engineered and hybrid systems, by: interpreting and exposing scientific knowledge and assumptions in existing model code and documentation; identifying new data and information resources automatically, and extracting useful information from these sources; integrating this useful information into machine-curated expert models; and executing these models in robust ways.
