The first application to be featured on the Labs website is EvidenceFinder, an application that surfaces “facts” based on a user’s search terms from full text articles.
The user is presented with a list of questions based on the search terms. Selecting a question refines the search results, and displays the specific evidence from the full text pertinent to that question. All evidential sentences from a given article can be also be browsed via the “Extracts from full text” tab. EvidenceFinder is built by NaCTeM, University of Manchester.
