Web portals like Google Scholar and ScienceDirect have revolutionized access to scientific information by making it possible to identify relevant papers via keyword search, and then to browse them on-line. However, as scientific information continues to grow exponentially, and as (e-)science embraces automation, keeping abreast of and exploiting the information in these papers effectively is becoming impossible. I’ll demonstrate a system which returns sentences and images (rather than PDFs) in response to fine-grained queries utilising multifaceted image- and text-based constraints constructed interactively and intuitively. I’ll then outline the technology behind the system and describe a preliminary evaluation that suggests it is about 500x more efficient than using Google Scholar and a PDF viewer.
