Basic Building Blocks for Clinical Text Processing [chapter]

Hercules Dalianis
2018 Clinical Text Mining  
However, clinical texts contain more noise in the form of incomplete sentences, misspelled words and non-standard abbreviations that can make the natural language processing cumbersome.  ...  Generally, the same building blocks used for regular texts can also be utilised for clinical text processing.  ...  Machine Learning Approaches for Negation Detection In a machine learning approach, annotated corpora of Swedish and English negation cues were used as training and evaluation data for the Stanford NER  ...

Improving negation detection with negation-focused pre-training [article]

Thinh Hung Truong, Timothy Baldwin, Trevor Cohn, Karin Verspoor
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Negation is a common linguistic feature that is crucial in many language understanding tasks, yet it remains a hard problem due to diversity in its expression in different types of text.  ...  Extensive experiments on common benchmarks show that our proposed approach improves negation detection performance and generalizability over the strong baseline NegBERT (Khandewal and Sawant, 2020).  ...  This research was conducted by the Australian Research Council Training Centre in Cognitive Computing for Medical Technologies (project number ICI70200030) and funded by the Australian Government.  ...
