Project KABI

Confidence Estimation for Biomedical Information Extraction

KABI: Confidence Estimation for Biomedical Information Extraction

Term
January 2016 - December 2017
PI
Roman Klinger
Short description

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.
