Cochrane Australia Symposium
Date: 22-23 November 2017
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Hosted by: Cochrane Australia
Description: The theme of this year’s Symposium is 'Towards living evidence'. Task automation, machine learning, data linkage and citizen science are just some examples of how the production and dissemination of evidence is being transformed. Whether for systematic reviews or guidelines, we now have tools, systems and structures to help us attain the goal of having continually updated evidence to inform decision-making.
