Almost a year ago, we submitted a Phase I SBIR proposal to perform additional research related to work that we have recently conducted in the field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Deep Learning. We were pleased to find out that we were awarded this SBIR grant to further our data science research program; and to develop software which aims to bring NLP technology to aid in the labor-intensive step of data extraction performed as part of systematic literature reviews. The SBIR program is highly competitive and has a legacy of funding some of the most high-tech as well as high-risk research ideas proposed by small businesses. We are thrilled to have been awarded a Phase I SBIR grant and look forward to this embarking upon this research endeavor.
