WikiProfessional: New Concept for Life Science
WikiProfessional was officially launched some weeks ago. So I think it’s time to say a few words about it. WikiProfessional is a new kind of a database. It searches in several sources and helps us how to get the most valuable information.
Redundancy of the same facts and opinions within a myriad of web-pages has artificially inflated the size of the Internet. To get a million search results on a query without the ability to separate redundancy of the same information from the incremental knowledge expansions on that query concept is highly inefficient. Within the Concept Web, information is converted to streamlined knowledge where redundancy and newness of idea expansion are properly represented.
The sources it uses (yes, it searches in Wikipedia)
I gave it a try with cystic fibrosis. Here is what I got:
A concept tree with the articles that should be mentioned
A proper definition, functional information, etc.
We still need time to get used to this system but I’ m pretty sure it can be better and more user-friendly than Pubmed itself.
