### Keynote ###

Apache clinical Text Analysis and Knowledge Extraction System (cTAKES)

The presentation will focus on methods and software development behind
the cTAKES platform. An overview of the modules will set the stage,
followed by more in-depth discussion of some of the methods and
evaluations of select modules. The second part of the presentation will
shift to software development topics such as optimization and
distributed computing including UIMA integration, UIMA-AS, as well as
our plans for UIMA-DUCC integration. A live demo of cTAKES will wrap the

About the speaker:

Pei Chen is a Vice President of Apache Software Foundation, leading the
top-level cTAKES project (ctakes.apache.org). He is also a lead
application development specialist at the Informatics Program at Boston
Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School. Mr. Pei’s interests lie in
building practical applications using machine learning techniques. He
has a passion for the end-user experience and has a background Computer
Science/Economics. Mr. Chen is a firm believer in the open source
community contributing to cTAKES as well as other Apache Software
Foundation Projects. Details at (not fully up-to-date)

Guergana Savova, Ph.D. is faculty at Harvard Medical School and Childrens
Hospital Boston. Her research interest is in natural language processing
(NLP) especially as applied to the text generated by physicians (the
clinical narrative) focusing on higher level semantic and discourse
processing which includes topics such as named entity recognition, event
recognition, relation detection and classification including
co-reference and temporal relations. The methods are mostly machine
learning spanning supervised, lightly supervised and completely
unsupervised. Her interest is also in the application of the NLP
methodologies to biomedical use cases. Dr. Savova has been leading the
development and is the principal architect of cTAKES. She holds a
Master’s of Science in Computer Science and a PhD in Linguistics with a
minor in Cognitive Science from University
of Minnesota. Details at (not fully up-to-date)
