Call for Expertise — Help Improve the COVID-19 Knowledge Base
Please join our volunteer group of infectious disease specialists, clinicians, epidemiologists, biostatisticians, and researchers from many related fields to help improve the knowledge base for COVID-19 diagnostics. Register here to join the effort.
Collaborative Knowledge Engineering
While there are no experts yet on COVID-19, many of you have clinical experience with all kinds of lung diseases. To help improve the COVID-19 knowledge base, we need to consolidate all your expertise quickly and efficiently.
Web-Based Expert Knowledge Elicitation
We are currently hosting a web-based knowledge elicitation session using the BEKEE framework. Upon registration, you will receive the credentials to log into the BEKEE server and can start sharing your expertise.
From Your Expertise to Worldwide Clinical Practice
Our objective is to further improve the Bayesian network that serves as the knowledge base for our COVID-19 Adaptive Questionnaire, i.e., an expert system that can differentiate COVID-19 from other flu-like diseases. This web-based this tool is available to clinicians around the world for immediate use.*
All models are wrong, but some are useful
This is a work in progress that improves on a daily basis thanks to the knowledge contributions of many volunteers. To learn about the background of this initiative, please see our recent webinar:
Spread the Word!
Also, if you know someone whose expertise could help us with this effort, please invite them to join our knowledge engineering group. Register here to join the team.
You may also want to share the current status of this project by forwarding a link to the latest iteration of the COVID-19 Adaptive Questionnaire.
