Search Technology is pleased to announce Ronald N. Kostoff, Research Associate, Georgia Institute of Technology, as the 2017 recipient of the TechMining for Global Good award.
The TechMining for Global Good award is intended to recognize steadfast TechMining-enabled efforts to advance decision-making processes and policy options on typically under-resourced issues of global importance. Ron has worked tirelessly to advance Literature-Related Discovery and Innovation (LRDI) text-mining processes. The LRDI methodology is applicable to all disciplines contained in the published research literature, and has been applied to technical and medical literatures. Ron's recent efforts have focused on developing protocols to prevent and reverse chronic diseases, including identifying and eliminating the causes of these diseases, as well as identifying and recommending potential treatments.
