If you would like to use the old status annotator for history in the interim while the new
assertion module models are added.
One can just uncomment the below from your AggregatePlaintextPipeline config/descriptor:
That annotator will set the IdentifiedAnnotation.uncertainty() with one of the following values:

Hi Tim,

I remember you, you helped me out a while back!   I can't tell you how much that BagOfAnnotations.java
file has been  a Godsend!   Thanks again for posting it last month.

As for historyOf feature,   I don't so much mind performance so if you have something that
works for the historyOf with just only a performance issue, I'll still take it. I do appreciate
your prompt response on the historyOf feature which saved me from stepping through the code
which I've done a few times....the time spent  stepping through is equivalent to watching
a feature film and there's a lot going on in the code that I don't understand yet.

As for sementID's with the rule-based sectionizer/segmenter,  I'd like to help out with testing.
    It appears that the first step is manual configuration per your email.   Pei, when you
have a moment I'd like to  start with explanation of how it works then we can move forward
from there.

Hi Paula,
The historyOf module is currently under development, that explains those files you're seeing.
As of right now we are not satisfied enough with the performance to release it publicly. It
is marked 0 because it is defined as an integer field I believe, so it can't be assigned null.

As for the segment IDs in your other question, the default segmenter just makes the whole
document one segment because we don't yet have a module robust enough to run on notes from
any institution. We have been hoping to get one developed but nothing has materialized so
far. There is a rule-based sectionizer/segmenter in the cTAKES distribution but it requires
some manual configuration and is not very widely tested. If you are interested in helping
test it out that would be great. Pei would be the best person to explain to you how it works,
we'll see if he's able to chime in.
(Ah, I just checked and saw he already pointed you to it. If you want to try it we can help
you get it working.)

Matt, sorry but I sent the email by accident and didn't finish my thought.  Since there's
this file (historyOf.psv) in the Assertion folder it gives the impression that Assertion can
be configured to account for historyOf.   Though I tried some of the words such as "had diabetes"
or "prior diabetes" and value still 0 for historyOf feature.  I think it is configurable because
of the fact the default value for historyOf is 0 as opposed to <NULL> .  Maybe I should
step through the code and see where and when it's assigning 0.

Hi Matt,

it's me again.  Are you sure that historyOf feature can't be configured using Assertion. 
 I was looking around the Assertion folder and came across a file called historyOf.psv.  What
is this?

It contains the following:

has been|historyOf|historyOf


hx of recent|historyOf|historyOf

hx of|historyOf|historyOf




status post|historyOf|historyOf

The ctakes assertion module does not have an option to set the historyOf attribute.  The assertion
module only sets subject, polarity, uncertainty, conditional, and generic.
