Have you ever wanted to extract medical information from clinical notes, biomedical textbooks, tweets or other unstructured text data? Have you tried to extract it yourself and hit roadblocks? Or, perhaps you were successful and but want to raise the bar and meet people doing similar work at UCSF.
On May 18, the Research Data Community Organizing team hosted an event dedicated to using natural language processing (NLP) to enable research.
This was a two-part event:
- The first part of the morning featured current work by researchers on campus who have successfully used NLP to enable their research. Learn what's possible with text analysis and information retrieval, and the support available to conduct medical research using NLP at UCSF.
View Presentations - Part 1
- The second part of the morning was a deep dive into the code and techniques used by analysts and programmers, with the goal of enabling participants to get started with NLP. It highlighted tools, examples, challenges and technical particulars in the use of NLP.
