UniPi: Recognition of Mentions of Disorders in Clinical Text

  title={UniPi: Recognition of Mentions of Disorders in Clinical Text},
  author={Giuseppe Attardi and Vittoria Cozza and Daniele Sartiano},
The paper describes our experiments addressing the SemEval 2014 task on the Analysis of Clinical text. Our approach consists in extending the techniques of NE recognition, based on sequence labelling, to address the special issues of this task, i.e. the presence of overlapping and discontiguous mentions and the requirement to map the mentions to unique identifiers. We explored using supervised methods in combination with word embeddings generated from unannotated data.
