Hi @Gavin_McStay, welcome to the forum :wave: and thanks for sharing Biomed News. I’ve come across the site a few times but never actually realized that it was machine learning supported - I thought that the curator’s work was entirely manual (i.e. they find and add papers to their report). Obviously, I missed a huge part of what is going on! Now that I know, I might try starting a report myself :slight_smile:

Hi Gavin, thanks for getting in touch. Machine learning is an essential part of our platform. Maybe I need to communicate that fact better. I got your report details so I’ll get that set up for you as soon as possible.

Some of your users might also be interested in the LitSuggest content alert system from NIH, which also uses machine learning: LitSuggest
