NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Recently, Linguamatics released a new version of I2E, its natural language processing text-mining platform, that includes several new features designed to make it easier for healthcare and life sciences customers to search for and incorporate information from text more accurately and efficiently.
The company has also begun testing a new community site that will provide a forum for people within the pharma and life sciences community to exchange ideas, share best practices, and text mining strategies. In October, the company launched an early-access program for the site at its annual user meeting.
Version 5.0 of the software features tools for normalizing concepts such as gene mutations and improved search features designed to help users find key information in unstructured texts and allow large quantities of data to be processed in a more automated fashion. The release also includes a new query language called the Extraction and Search Language, EASL, — previously available in beta — that allows text mining queries to be described and written in a human-readable text format. EASLs can be generated outside the I2E platform, and support custom interfaces and enhanced workflow automation.
