(skä-lər-fī) n. an interactive reading application that explains a paper's lexicon, literature, and letters.
ScholarPhi ("ScholarΦ") is an interactive application for reading scientific papers. The vision of ScholarPhi is to provide on-demand explanations of the terms, citations, and notation that appear within in a paper. What if, for instance, a paper could generate an explanation like this one when a reader wonders what the symbol λ means?
ScholarPhi is a research project of UC Berkeley, the Allen Institute for AI, and the University of Washington. The project receives support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the Allen Institute for AI. The ScholarPhi project is under active development.
