Hi Hua,
Yes, the Common Type System could be found in the svn [1] and diagram [2].
For interoperability, it would be nice to populate the Medication attribute types (opposed
to the MedEx specific one).  From initial glance, it looks like the common type system should
support it without many changes.
One can just include type system as a maven dependency or import that above UIMA xml.  Would
you also be interested in have the code maintained in ASF community?  I think it would be
a great addition to the existing cTAKES components...  I'll be happy to assist if it's something
you're interested in pursuing.

MedEx-UIMA is rule-based, instead of ML. :) What are the work involved in using the cTAKES
common type system? We could consider it when Min has time. Thanks.

Subject: MedEx-UIMA

Dr. Xu,
That was a wonderful presentation on MedEx (ML based medication extraction) during the iDASH
Would there be any interest in contributing/integrating MedEx-UIMA as an Apache cTAKES [1]
component/module?  I had a quick look at the code and it looks like it's already using Java/UIMA
already (perhaps the only main item to change would be to use the cTAKES common type system).
