Training workshop: Analysing Free Text in Medical Records

May 2, 2018 - May 3, 2018

The workshop, organised by the Farr Institute, is a two-day event, which will be held on Wednesday 2nd & Thursday 3rd May at the Data Science Building, Singleton Park Campus, Swansea University.

This workshop will provide an introduction to the field of clinical natural language processing (NLP), from its origins before the advent of ‘Big Data’, to the current state of the art, comprising information extraction algorithms processing millions of documents on large compute clusters and clouds. In addition, this course will convey an appreciation of the complexity that different NLP problems pose, via a series of talks and practical sessions. For individuals wishing to partake in practical sessions, some basic programming experience is recommended.

The workshop will be delivered by Dr Angus Roberts, Senior Lecturer in Health Informatics, King’s College London.
