April 7, 2020 | In an open letter to the scientific medical community yesterday, Alexandre Bilger, CEO at Sinequa, announced COVID Intelligent Insight, an open, free, and collaborative scientific search portal to gather the most useful and relevant information related to the virus.

Sinequa’s free offering is among many tools and solutions newly made available to the Bio-IT community to help facilitate COVID-19 research from players in this space including BioTeam, NVIDIA, Globus, Igneous, Veeva, Elemental Machines, AgileBio and more.

The portal includes the largest repository of its kind, with over 70,000 papers, articles, and publications specifically focused on COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2. With new material added daily, sources include the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19), publications from the World Health Organization database, content from Elsevier, and the CDC.

COVID Intelligent Insight is meant to be a portal to, “help scientific and medical professionals surface insights and analyze information across the many sources of rapidly-evolving scientific research papers and publications so that you can sift through all the content and quickly get to the information you need,” Bilger wrote.

The portal lets users intelligently search the entire text of scientific literature using semantic, clinically-aware terminology, navigate enriched document views to immediately find terms and concepts of interest, and analyze information through visualizations.  

“We expect you will find this portal beneficial in its current form—but we also want to continually improve it,” he continued. “We are engineers and technologists—not doctors or scientists—so your input will guide our efforts.”

Sinequa is seeking feedback to improve the portal including which additional sources should be included. Suggestions can be sent to
