I am a PhD student doing research in data mining and information retrieval. Specifically my research interests include collaborative filtering, learning to rank, web, text and graph mining.
I have a lot of ideas to improve the scientific search and have a solid background in various mathematical models to do that. If you want to join me in this challenge I bet we will make an awesome submission or even a few of them. I am ready to develop models and came up with interesting proposals for the challenge though need a strong developer to collaborate.
If interested please contact me at sciversewinner \65\84 gmail.com. I wish good luck and productive work to all the other participants of the challenge and please don't take personally the email address, though intensions are serious!
I have a science-related PC app that I use but it has gone "out of print". It was developed by a Chemistry prof (Penn State, as I recall; but don't quote me) and his graduate students for their Chemistry classes; then the prof retired and put the PC app out there for sale ($ 40 per user, as I recall). The last time I bought a copy was 2001. Now I need more copies but cannot locate the supplier. If someone could clone this app for the iPhone, many people would be appreciative! I am not a developer; all I have is a lead to an app that needs development.
