Text Mine COVID-19 Research Using ITHAKA’s New Text Mining Service

The idea? Put publicly available datasets all in one place so it’s easier for researchers to do text mining and analysis on over 19 million academic articles. The CORD-19 dataset, a full-text and metadata dataset of COVID-19 and coronavirus-related research articles, is included. Amy Kirchhoff is the Text and Data Mining Business Manager at ITHAKA, the company that runs popular academic research site JSTOR. Kirchhoff is also an Archive Service Product Manager at Portico, ITHAKA’s content preservation archive.

Finally an End-to-End Encryption Video Conferencing Software

Popular video conferencing software Zoom and other remote conferencing tech services have been in the news lately for failing to fully secure users’ data, especially at a time when business suddenly went 100% online remote overnight and sensitive data is at risk. One company in Ontario has created a solution. Instead of reverse engineering encryption within a platform or between technology products, a company called Tauria claims to have built a suite of remote office products from the ground up with end-to-end encryption in mind from the beginning. It’s available by free trial, only $10/month for small businesses (more for enterprise solutions), and it’s launching this month.

Software Company Jottful Builds Creative Community in Tech and Coworking

The ladies who run Jottful set out to help very small businesses with fewer than 5 employees create professional websites. “Our clients are often self-employed consultants, or service-oriented businesses,” says Dawn Verbrigghe, founder and CEO.
