In this paper we present a textual dialogue system that uses word associations retrieved from the Web to create propositions. We also show experiment results for the role of modality generation. The proposed system automatically extracts sets of words related to a conversation topic set freely by a user. After the extraction process, it generates an(More)
Medical Markup Language (MML), as a set of standards, has been developed over the last 8 years to allow the exchange of medical data between different medical information providers. MML Version 2.21 used XML as a metalanguage and was announced in 1999. In 2001, MML was updated to Version 2.3, which contained 12 modules. The latest version—Version 3.0—is(More)
OBJECTIVE At present, most clinical data are exchanged between organizations within a regional system. However, people traveling abroad may need to visit a hospital, which would make international exchange of clinical data very useful. BACKGROUND Since 2007, a collaborative effort to achieve clinical data sharing has been carried out at Zhejiang(More)
OBJECTIVE There is a growing realisation that clinical pathways (CPs) are vital for improving the treatment quality of healthcare organisations. However, treatment personalisation is one of the main challenges when implementing CPs, and the inadequate dynamic adaptability restricts the practicality of CPs. The purpose of this study is to improve the(More)
We have proposed a method of machine translation, which acquires translation rules from translation examples using inductive learning, and have evaluated the method. And we have confirmed that the method requires many translation examples. To resolve this problem, we applied genetic algorithms to the method. In this paper, we describe our method with(More)
The rapid expansion in user-generated content on the Web of the 2000s, characterized by social media, has led to Web content featuring somewhat less standardized language than the Web of the 1990s. User creativity and individuality of language creates problems on two levels. The first is that social media text is often unsuitable as data for Natural(More)
We propose a variation of the SO-PMI algorithm for Japanese, for use in Weblog Opinion Mining. SO-PMI is an unsuper-vised approach proposed by Turney that has been shown to work well for English. We first used the SO-PMI algorithm on Japanese in a way very similar to Turney's original idea. The result of this trial leaned heavily toward positive opinions.(More)
This paper proposes an idea for constructing a personalized recommendation system for the Electronic Program Guide (EPG). This system would use a basic statistics method with feedback process to predict television programs. We have applied this method to personal prediction of online Internet Electronic Program Guide (IEPG). The system was found to have(More)
Current EMR system benefits physicians by facilitating order entry and reducing errors. It can improve the safety and effectiveness of medical services, but cannot manage the whole medical process and the quality of medical services. In addition to physicians, EMR should be designed for all medical professionals because medical services cannot be(More)
