Welcome to NLP@UCSF community knowledge base!

This Wiki space is used to document shared and curated knowledge UCSF NLP community generates as we experiment, learn and implement NLP tools in various clinical and biomedical research and innovation projects. Everyone involved with NLP work at UCSF and affiliate organizations is encouraged to contribute content here. Space administrators will help organize and categorize the knowledge based on community input to make it accessible and usable for UCSF community.

Monthly Meetups

NLP@UCSF community organizers are pleased to announce monthly practitioner meetups for those of us who implement or use NLP to enable research or support clinical work. Ongoing meetups are usually scheduled for the last Thursday of every month at 3:30pm. Locations will rotate. This regular meeting is an opportunity for UCSF NLP practitioners to ask questions, discuss approaches and solutions, share best practices as well as the latest news from the field.

NLP-Biomed Slack Channel

Did you know there is a Slack channel for biomedical NLP practitioners on UC Tech Slack? It is envisioned as a space for instant communications, practice Q&A, announcements for UCSF (and other UCs) community of practice around NLP! If you are interested/involved in NLP work, it is probably a good idea to join the channel. Here is how.
