While publication rate of the biomedical literature has been growing steadily during the last decades, the accessibility of pertinent research publications for biologist and medical practitioners remains a challenge. This paper describes Thalia, which is a semantic search engine that can recognize eight different types of concepts occurring in biomedical abstracts. Thalia is available via a web-based interface or a RESTful API. A key aspect of our search engine is that it is updated from PubMed on a daily basis. We describe here the main building blocks of our tool as well as an evaluation of the retrieval capabilities of Thalia in the context of a precision medicine dataset.

VarSome.com is a search engine, aggregator and impact analysis tool for human genetic variation and a community-driven project aiming at sharing global expertise on human variants.
This article investigates how the world uses Google, the most popular search engine, to look for information about the "Internet" as well as two symptoms of emotional well-being, namely "anxiety" and ...
Primary research concerning molecular pathways that link rheumatoid arthritis with periodontitis is limited. Biomedical literature data mining can offer insights into putative linkage mechanisms towar...
Multimodal hashing has attracted much interest for cross-modal similarity search on large-scale multimedia data sets because of its efficiency and effectiveness. Recently, supervised multimodal hashin...
Deep learning techniques, e.g., Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), have been explosively applied to the research in the fields of information retrieval and natural language processing. However, few...
The iTrackFitness study aims to test the "engagement engine" that was developed from activity tracker and survey data gathered during phase I of the study. For the current phase the "engag...
The aim is to understand which components of attentional deployment and selection are impaired in AD during searching in realistic scenes on a computer screen (Experiment 1) and in a natur...
Translation of new knowledge from research into evidence-informed health care is a shared obligation of the clinical and the scientific communities. Unfortunately, studies of quality of ca...

Software used to locate data or information stored in machine-readable form locally or at a distance such as an INTERNET site.
For individual abstracts of presentations at meetings, congresses, conferences, symposia, colloquia, seminars, workshops, round tables, and other professional gatherings.
A framework for development and promotion of common data formats and exchange protocols linked in a way that can be read directly by computers. Semantic Web is a platform for sharing and reusing data across application, enterprise, and community boundaries, by linking concepts rather than just documents.
A research and development program initiated by the NATIONAL LIBRARY OF MEDICINE to build knowledge sources for the purpose of aiding the development of systems that help health professionals retrieve and integrate biomedical information. The knowledge sources can be used to link disparate information systems to overcome retrieval problems caused by differences in terminology and the scattering of relevant information across many databases. The three knowledge sources are the Metathesaurus, the Semantic Network, and the Specialist Lexicon.
Application of principles and practices of engineering science to biomedical research and health care.
