We are always amazed and impressed at the inventiveness of Linguamatics customers, in their applications of text analytics to address their information challenges.
Our annual Linguamatics Spring Users Conference showcased some examples of their innovation, with presentations on text mining used for patent analytics, chemical pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics data extraction, creating value from legacy safety reports, and integrating open source tools for advanced entity recognition.
We had a record-breaking number of attendees this year, representing over 20 organizations, ranging from our most experienced I2E users to text mining novices.
Patent analytics featured in two of the presentations, demonstrating the value of NLP in extracting critical information from obtuse and lengthy patent documents.
