I believe Tim started a thread on how to programmatically extract the entitis/cui's currently
via this thread:



A couple of us are going to be in Austin,TX for Apache Con so if you happen to be there, we
can plan to meet up.

I have already searched the archive of this mailing list however if this question is duplicate
then please don't flame me.


I have some experience with NLTK in Python. I have gone through some of the basic literature
on natural language processing.


Using NLTK I can perform entity extraction pretty easily.


My questions are


1. is there a tutorial available on CTAKES from a development perspective. I need to use the
API to perform entity extraction. (i need exact APIs).


2. How can someone build a custom corpus with CTAKES. I know it works in medical context but
my use case is even narrower (like text related to gynecology)


Also, lastly, is there anyone on this mailing list in Dallas region I would love to meet you
in person.
