News : The organizing committee of the AI+Informetrics Workshop 2021 is aware that it is a challenging time due to the global COVID-19 pandemics. Aiming to provide a convenient time for the community to conduct high-quality research, we have decided to extend the deadline for submission to: February 20th, 2021 (ANY TIMEZONE on earth).
The following 17 papers have been accepted and will be presented at AII2021 on March 17,2021.
Driven by the big data boom, informetrics, known as the study of quantitative aspects of information, has gained great benefits from artificial intelligence (Nilsson 1998) – including a wide range of intelligent agents through techniques such as neural networks, genetic programming, computer vision, heuristic search, knowledge representation and reasoning, Bayes network, planning and language understanding. With its capacities in analyzing unstructured scalable data and streams, understanding uncertain semantics, and developing robust and repeatable models, “Artificial Intelligence + Informetrics” has demonstrated enormous success in turning big data into big value and impact by handling diverse challenges raised from multiple disciplines and research areas. For example, bibliometric-enhanced information retrieval (Mayr et al., 2014), science mapping with topic models (Suominen and Toivanen, 2016), streaming data analytics for tracking technological change (Zhang et al., 2017), and entity extraction with unsupervised machine learning techniques (Zhang and Zhang, 2019). Such endeavours with broadened perspectives from machine intelligence would portend far-reaching implications for science (Fortunato et al., 2018), but how to effectively cohere the power of AI and informetrics to create cross-disciplinary solutions is still elusive from neither theoretical nor practical perspectives.
This workshop is to gather researchers and practical users to open a collaborative platform for exchanging ideas, sharing pilot studies, and scoping future directions on this cutting-edge venue. We highlight “AI + Informetrics” as endeavors in constructing fundamental theories, developing novel methodologies, bridging conceptual knowledge with practical uses, and creating real-word solutions. Specific examples of fields of interest include:
Abstract: Artificial Intelligence (AI) has fundamentally changed every aspect of our lives. In AI, the half life of a paper could be less than one year which means that new algorithms have been developed and become out of date within just one year, sometimes could be just few months. Computer vision leads the newly development of fansinating AI algorithms, which are then diffused to natural language processing and graph mining. AI has challenged our understandings of collaboration, knoweldge diffusion, and even citing behavior. The new concepts of human-machine teaming, cognitive computing in knowledge diffusion, citing future rather past are all happening right now at the AI era. This talk will highlight several research practices and share the thoughts about the current and future of AI and Science of Science.

Her current research interests include data-driven science of science, AI in healthcare, Semantic Web, knowledge graph, data science, scholarly communication, and the application of Web technologies.
Abstract: Global models based on full literature databases are far more accurate at characterizing the structure of science than local models that are based on keyword or journal sets. However, local models continue to form the basis of most scientometrics studies, likely due to the lack of access to full databases by most practitioners. In this presentation we 1) examine the relative accuracies of global and local models, 2) explain the applications and benefits of using global models, and 3) show how global models can be created by nearly anyone using today’s open access resources.
Dr. Kevin Boyack has been with SciTech Strategies since July 2007. Previously he worked at Sandia National Laboratories in areas of combustion, transport processes, socio-economic war gaming, and science mapping. His recent work and current interests include detailed mapping of the structure and dynamics of science and technology, accuracy of maps and classifications, merging of multiple data types and sources, identification and prediction of emerging topics, and development of advanced metrics.
The workshop will be held on March 17, 2021 (Beijing Time), and specific activities include keynotes, paper presentations session.
