The Meta project at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) is an innovative, intuitive way of empowering scientists to keep up-to-date with the literature. As with many modern online systems, the app centers around feeds; in this case feeds of recommendations for scientific papers, tailored to the recipient's research interests.

This talk will describe the purpose and function of Meta, including how it differs from similar services such as Semantic Scholar and PubMed. The talk will also detail how the tool indexes biomedical literature and supports the creation of feeds through content curation and data analysis.

The presentation focuses on the CZI's approach in providing a tech-centered, entrepreneurial driving force behind scientific communication. It will also discuss how studying the way in which scientists engage with the literature can provide crucial insights for developing informatics.
