Title : Application of Text Mining for Healthcare
Abstract : Healthcare informatics encompasses many disciplines and deals with large volume of data. In many cases this data is text in the form of narrative documents. This natural language text requires sophisticated analysis techniques to extract the needed knowledge. In this talk, I will present work in progress in three health related applications in which text mining plays a significant role, from sentiment analysis and interrogation identification to automatic word sense disambiguation and contrastive argument summarization.
