Enhancing Medical Named Entity Recognition with Features Derived from Unsupervised Methods
2014 (English)In: Proceedings of the Student Research Workshop at the 14th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics, Stroudsburg, PA: Association for Computational Linguistics, 2014, 21-30 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
A study of the usefulness of features extracted from unsupervised methods is pro- posed. The usefulness of these features will be studied on the task of performing named entity recognition within one clinical sub-domain as well as on the task of adapting a named entity recognition model to a new clinical sub-domain. Four named entity types, all very relevant for clinical information extraction, will be studied: Disorder, Finding, Pharmaceutical Drug and Body Structure. The named entity recognition will be performed using conditional random fields. As unsupervised features, a clustering of the semantic representation of words obtained from a ran- dom indexing word space will be used.
