MWK Baden-Württemberg Funds Research Project on Biomedical Information
Extraction


Successful participation in the call for “RiSC – Research Seed Capital”: The State Ministry of Baden-Württemberg for Sciences, Research and Arts funds the project “KABI — Confidence Estimation for Biomedical Information Extraction”, which has been proposed by Roman Klinger.
In the Life Sciences, most information is only available in free text in scientific publications. Automatic methods to extract such knowledge and to provide it in structured databases is challenged by a dilemma: Especially if potentially new information is detected in text, it is unclear if this information is actually correct or if it is wrongly extracted, for instance because the text is formulated in an uncommon way. In this project, methods will be developed which help to estimate the reliability of extracted information from biomedical publications.
