MMPathIC Text Mining Workshop - Professor Sophia Ananiadou
|Dates:||8 February 2019|
|Times:||12:00 - 15:00|
|What is it:||Workshop|
|Organiser:||Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health|
|Who is it for:||University staff|
Professor Sophia Ananiadou leads the Manchester Molecular Pathology Innovation Centre's 'Text and Opportunity Mining' work strand - set up to train text mining tools to recognise different types of information relating to biomarkers in large volumes of text.
This technology (and a number of other text mining technologies) is ready for validation in partnership with clinicians and industrial partners with specific use cases.
Here are some of the systems which may be of interest to clinicians and industrial partners:
• - RobotAnalyst: http://www.nactem.ac.uk/robotanalyst/
• - Thalia: http://www.nactem.ac.uk/Thalia/
• - FACTA: http://www.nactem.ac.uk/facta/
These systems are the frontend of a number of text mining tools working behind the scenes, which would benefit from embedding with clinical teams with specific questions and project ideas.
This workshop is for clinical and industry colleagues who would like to attend a showcase of these innovative text mining approaches for biomarker discovery. There will also be potential to discuss collaborative grant applications where this enabling technology will be an asset.
Lunch will be provided.
