Övergripande uppdragsbeskrivning

We are now looking for a Consultant for AI to Karolinska Institutet.

The Karolinska University Library (KIB) needs a consultant to implement a machine learning approach for assigning publications with subject classes using “Standard för svensk indelning av forskningsämnen”, in the reminder of this document referred to as SCB-classes. The classification contains about 300 classes and each publication can be assigned multiple classes (probably with a maximum of three per publication). Training data will be provided by KIB. Input data will be retrieved from the bibliometric system (including for example Medical Subject Headings, SCB-classes for researchers, citation-relations and possibly also textual information such as title and abstract of the publications). The consultant should help choosing an appropriate model, implement and evaluate the model, help integrating the model with the bibliometric system, and discuss and explain the model.

It is difficult to estimate how many hours the assignment will cover, but we estimate that it is between 50-100 hours distributed over different periods with different intensity. It is part of the assignment to help concretize the structure of the assignment.


Be competent in machine learning approaches for classification. She/he should be able to choose an appropriate method (pro/cons), motivate the choice and describe alternatives and implement the machine learning-based classification in the system.
Have programming competence in a language possible to integrate with the bibliometric system, preferably R or Python. It should be possible for the bibliometric team to train the model on new data from the documentation left by the consultant.
Have pedagogical skills. Knowledge transfer is important for the bibliometric team to understand the chosen model and its alternatives and update the model with new training data.


Have knowledge of the standard organizational structure of scientific publications, preferably within medicine/natural sciences
