  == Background ==
  The development of cTAKES started in 2006 by a team of physicians, computer scientists and
software engineers at the Mayo Clinic. The development team was led by Dr. Guergana Savova
& Dr. Christopher Chute. cTAKES is released open source under an Apache v2.0 license.
This system was deployed at Mayo and is currently an integral part of their clinical data
management infrastructure and has processed in excess of 80 million clinical notes. Currently,
the core development team is co-located at Mayo Clinic and Children's Hospital Boston following
Dr. Savova's move to Children's Hospital Boston in early 2010. Additional collaborations with
external groups at University of Colorado, Brandeis University, University of Pittsburgh,
University of California at San Diego continue to extend the capabilities of cTAKES into areas
such Temporal Reasoning, Clinical Question and Answering, and coreference resolution for the
clinical domain. In 2010, cTAKES was adopted by the I2B2 program and is a central component
of the SHARP Area 4. The current cTAKES components include:
