NLP tales in Biomedicine
Auckland MeetUp group, June 2014
Mining text to answer biomedical questions is a fascinating applied research area. The biomedical domain is one of the first 'big data' domains. It attracts people from the domain itself passionate to answer pressing scientific questions as well as computer scientists and linguists who see a domain with great standards, resources and numerous applications.
During this talk I will give you a brief overview of different NLP problems in the biomedical domain and I'll make comparisons to mainstream NLP applications (e.g., search) and other, more commercial domains (e.g., voice of customer). My aim is to introduce you to a domain with state of the art solutions, free high-quality resources and well developed methodologies. If I inspire anyone to work on challenging biomedical problems, will be a bonus!
