DR. RONALD KOSTOFF
Research Associate of GTRI
ABSTRACT: Literature-Related Discovery and Innovation (LRDI - formerly LRD-Literature-Related Discovery) integrates 1) discovery generation from disparate literatures with 2) the wealth of knowledge contained in prior art to 3) potentially reverse chronic and infectious diseases and/or 4) potentially solve technical problems that appear intractable. This presentation describes the evolution of LRDI by the author and the insights gained/lessons learned over the past decade.
Some of the issues addressed include: What is literature-related discovery and innovation (LRDI); What are its main capabilities (Illustrative examples focused on knowledge discovery and characterization); What are its potential benefits; Who are its potential sponsors; potential future initiatives; what are some of the studies, results, and lessons learned?
