Pistoia Alliance

October 10, 2017
Venue: Boston, Massachusetts, United States

We look forward to seeing you at the Pistoia Alliance US Conference 2017 in Boston.

We will be presenting a poster on "Bridging the gaps:  NLP in translational research" - see the abstract below!

Abstract: For the past few years, artificial intelligence (AI) technologies such as natural language processing (NLP) have been hot topics in biomedicine, as researchers and healthcare providers consider ways to leverage innovative tools to transform bioscience research and clinical care. Accessing the right information is critical but much of the data is locked in textual format, such as scientific literature, clinical trial reports or electronic health records. NLP can effectively speed the extraction of critical information from unstructured scientific and clinical text. Use cases span discovery, development, and healthcare delivery – such as utilization of text mining for genotype-phenotype annotation, selecting patients for clinical trials, and extracting key endpoints from pathology reports and EHRs for better patient care.
