Pico Portal Webinar

Panel of Speakers

Tune in for a chance to hear from the founders of Pico Portal
FREE webinar on February 23rd!

PICO Portal is a new, independent, evidence synthesis platform for scoping reviews, rapid reviews, systematic reviews, and evidence synthesis type project of any size or scale. With its modern user-friendly interface, mobile support, and flexible workflow it is built to support collaboration and participation of researchers, stakeholders, and informationists/librarians. 

PICO Portal intelligently automates tasks such as deduplication, identifying study type, highlighting relevant keywords, finding, and uploading full-text articles, and predicting articles eligibility for inclusion. It uses Machine Learning (ML) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms to deduplicate articles, highlight relevant keywords and prioritize citations for screening.

Additionally,  a Teaching Kit is available for instructors, providing hands-on experience in the conduct of evidence synthesis.  The speakers will be presenting on how the tools work and why they were developed - including a live demo, and Q&A session.  Read more: https://picoportal.org/
