Got an email from the developers of IRIS AI the other day:
And decided to play around with it. So I went to our Zotero collection on microbiology of the built environment:
Meadow, J. F., Altrichter, A. E., Kembel, S. W., Kline, J., Mhuireach, G., Moriyama, M., Northcutt, D., O’Connor, T. K., Womack, A. M., Brown, G. Z., Green, J. L ., Bohannan, B. J. M. Indoor airborne bacterial communities are influenced by ventilation, occupancy, and outdoor air source
I then went to IRIS
Clicked on Explore
I pasted the URL into the bar: and waited and this came up
I clicked on Explore and voila – 235 papers sorted by categories
One can then get some metrics or zoom in on different categories. I zoomed in:
and inside each box are papers of possibly relevance. And it really did a pretty good job of both finding possibly connected papers and finding papers I was not aware of. Wow — good first test. So I tried another.
And it found 477 papers
So I zoomed in on some topics. Some were relevant to me some not but that is OK. I found one relevant. And it led me down an awesome rabbit hole
To a specific paper from 2008–
And then by clicking browse paper I could look at connections for this paper.
And then into the rabbit hole again
Honestly, I am off, on a Sunday morning, to play around more with IRIS so I am stopping with this post. It is a nice rabbit hole to go into. I definitely think it is worth checking out.
