Proposing distributional semantics as a tool for medical vocabulary expansion
2015 (English)Other (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
A tool that extends a given vocabulary by automatically extracting new term candidates from a corpus could facilitate vocabulary expansion, as well as ensure that extracted terms correspond to those actually used in a specific text genre. We here propose a user interface for such a tool, and evaluate the feasibility of using Random Indexing for positioning new term candidates in a given taxonomy.
