Gintare Grigonyte: Detecting the Evolution of Biomedical Domain Terminology: progress report. 15:15, 28.03.2012, at Binzmühlestr. 14, Room 1.D.06
ABSTRACT: Since the emergence of the Internet, vast amounts of electronic texts have become readily available, allowing increasing automation of the process of acquisition, storage, organization and sharing of information. Information extraction (IE) and information retrieval (IR) are leading research disciplines which aim at developing methods to automatically classify, select and extract the relevant information. Successful IR and IE systems often rely on using terms and keywords. Up until recently very little research has been done related to the fact that terms evolve during time and thus directly effect applications like document search or relations/event extraction. The proposed project aims at developing methods for detecting the evolution of the terminology.
