SPIKE Extractive Search is a sentence-level, context-aware, and linguistically informed extractive search system. The SPIKE-CORD platform is intended to complement existing general-purpose search and question-answering solutions, which primarily focus on the document or paragraph level. SPIKE-CORD instead works in a paradigm as an extractive search, focusing on words, phrases, and sentences. While more involved than a “standard” search engine, SPIKE-CORD also allows substantially more control over the results.

This tool searches over the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset (CORD-19), a free resource of over 50K scholarly articles about COVID-19 and related coronaviruses provided by AI2’s Semantic Scholar project. Check out the guide for more detailed information.
