Understand citation contexts as you browse PubMed papers.
This extension aims to help people better understand the citation contexts of a PubMed article. We extracted over 100 million citation contexts from semanticscholar.org, and trained a deep learning model to classify those citation contexts into substantial citations or passing mentions, with recall and precision both of over 80 percent. In addition, a substantial citation is further classified into three categories, based on whether the citation is about comparing two or more studies/methods/etc, using a method/tool/technique/etc, or making judgement.
