Hey guys - sorry I didn’t see the request to reserve a room until just now. The rooms have taken to using all-mentions quite a bit, which has diluted my attention to notifications. Probably best to directly message me?

Hi, all Thanks for the productive meeting today. I just want to make sure that we try to find automated way of searching and text-scraping information, instead of doing it manually even with pilot studies. If @YangZhou0417 can reserve a room for next meeting, I'd appreciate it. Please also update us with a stat consulting meeting.

No problem, I will do the reservation next time. By the way, we went to the consulting today but the door is closed, maybe it's due to we did not schedule an appointment in advance, but we will find some resource online and if @davclark could provide some help on get access of the author's name and citation, country etc. it will be great!
Most of The file form may be pdf by the way

Meeting notes for yesterday are now up , also, it should make more sense to read it alongside with the notes on the board. That being said, can someone upload the picture of the notes? Thank you!

@YangZhou0417 so, help automating scraping pdfs? Sadly, most of scraping is not technical, rather lots of thinking and tweaking patterns. Some PDFs will have metadata. Let's start with that?

Sure, so is there any examples that you suggest is to go through?
