We report the results of a study into the use of a linear interpolating hidden Markov model (HMM) for the task of extracting technical terminology from MEDLINE abstracts and texts in the molecular-biology domain. This is the rst stage in a system that will extract event information for automatically updating biology databases. We trained the HMM entirely(More)
The tagging of Named Entities (NE), the names of particular things or classes and numeric expressions, is regarded as an important component technology for many NLP applications. These applications include Information Extraction, from which it was born, QuestionAnswering, Summarization and Information Retrieval. However, up to now, the number of NE types(More)
The rapid growth of collections in online academic databases has meant that there is increasing di culty for experts who want to access information in a timely and e cient way. We seek here to explore the application of information extraction methods to the identi cation and classi cation of terms in biological abstracts from MEDLINE. We explore the use of(More)
Detection of abusive language in user generated online content has become an issue of increasing importance in recent years. Most current commercial methods make use of blacklists and regular expressions, however these measures fall short when contending with more subtle, less ham-fisted examples of hate speech. In this work, we develop a machine learning(More)
We present an outline of the genome information acquisition (GENIA) project for automatically extracting biochemical information from journal papers and abstracts. GENIA will be available over the Internet and is designed to aid in information extraction, retrieval and visualisation and to help reduce information overload on researchers. The vast repository(More)
The tagging of Named Entities, the names of particular things or classes, is regarded as an important component technology for many NLP applications. The first Named Entity set had 7 types, organization, location, person, date, time, money and percent expressions. Later, in the IREX project artifact was added and ACE added two, GPE and facility, to pursue(More)
We have developed a sentence extraction system that estimates the significance of sentences by integrating four scoring functions that use as evidence sentence location, sentence length, TF/IDF values of words, and similarity to the title. Similarity to a given query is also added to the system in the summarization task for information retrieval. Parameters(More)
Abstract We have introduced information extraction technique such as named entity tagging and pattern discovery to a summarization system based on sentence extraction technique, and evaluated the performance in the Document Understanding Conference 2001 (DUC-2001). We participated in the Single Document Summarization task in DUC-2001 and achieved one of the(More)
Automatic Multi-Document summarization is still hard to realize. Under such circumstances, we believe, it is important to observe how humans are doing the same task, and look around for different strategies. We prepared 100 document sets similar to the ones used in the DUC multi-document summarization task. For each document set, several people prepared the(More)
Huge quantities of on-line medical texts such as Medline are available, and we would hope to extract useful information from these resources, as much as possible, hopefully in an automatic way, with the aid of computer technologies. Especially, recent advances in Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques raise new challenges and opportunities for(More)
