The paper “Reconstructing Manual Information Extraction with DB-to-Document Backprojection: Experiments in the Life Science Domain” by Mark-Christoph Müller, Sucheta Ghosh, Maja Rey, Ulrike Wittig, Wolfgang Müller, and Michael Strube was accepted as full paper at the Scholarly Document Processing Workshop (SDP). This is the first published result of DeepCurate, a joint project of the SDBV and the NLP group, funded by the BMBF and the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
The Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS) was established in 2010 by the physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural sciences, mathematics and computer science, with a focus on the processing, structuring, and analyzing of large amounts of complex data and the development of computational methods and software. The research fields range from molecular biology to astrophysics. The shareholders of HITS are the HITS-Stiftung, which is a subsidiary of the Klaus Tschira Foundation, Heidelberg University and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). HITS also cooperates with other universities and research institutes and with industrial partners. The base funding of HITS is provided by the HITS Stiftung with funds received from the Klaus Tschira Foundation. The primary external funding agencies are the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), the German Research Foundation (DFG), and the European Union.
