CONGRESO 3-D analytics technique for research options comparison


This technique allows an easier way of comparison of different research options based on a 3-D analytics technique that integrates the "consensus of interest" of the research team and the management, the functionality or effect and the source. Once a manager decides to dig into particular research field, it is not uncommon, that there are different research options (metabolites, cells, substances, etc) to base and develop a research project. So the cost of opportunity to select one is high. The authors mined literature and patents contents and upon their results developed a 3-D analytics technique to map bioactive or technical effects, the agents or promoters of those effects and the sources that contain those agents or promoters. This technique has been already validated through a practical application. The output of this technique display automatically into the matrix cells the results of a third dimension choosed. It is not more about quantitative data results upon the co-occurrence between two fields or dimensions. It is about presenting the terms contained in a third field and their frequency. This automatic output process allows getting results upon the analysis of large volumes of scientific articles or patents records structured texts. The third field terms results displayed in the matrix cells allows an easy way to get the whole landscape of options. This presentation facilitates the researchers and decision makers, knowledge about the source (on the matrix rows) of the results displayed in the matrix and at the same time their type of activity or effcts (columns header) deployed in the application. So the 3-D matrix would facilitate the discussions and the consensus establishment about the best choices.
