AbbVie, Bayer, Merck KgaA, Mundipharma, and Novo Nordisk are to share text mining insights at a Cambridge, UK meeting.

Cambridge, England and Boston, USA - Linguamatics, the leading natural language processing (NLP) text analytics provider, today announced its Spring Text Mining Conference 2018 will feature presentations from several top-tier biomedical organizations. The conference, taking place April 23 to April 25 in Cambridge, England, will highlight the wide range of ways that organizations are leveraging I2E, Linguamatics’ powerful NLP-based AI technology, to extract actionable insights from the huge amount of unstructured data available in healthcare and the life sciences.

In addition to presentations from AbbVie, Bayer, Merck KgaA, Mundipharma, and Novo Nordisk, the conference will offer hands-on training for users, opportunities for exchanging ideas and networking, sessions on industry trends and best practices, and demonstrations of the latest Linguamatics technology updates.

“We are seeing ever broader use of NLP for research, intellectual property and real-world evidence,” said David Milward, chief technology officer for Linguamatics. “We are looking forward to learning more about the innovative ways our customers are taking advantage of our text mining technology, and to share details on the latest enhancements to our technology stack, including NLP and machine learning updates.”

Key presentations cover a broad range of text mining use cases including: the use of I2E to mine rare adverse event (AEs) data from clinical trials information; implementation of I2E AMP in automated workflows to extract data elements for IDMP (identification of medicinal products), regulatory compliance and general data governance; novel strategies for the use of bespoke ontologies and sub-corpora for effective text mining; approaches to providing SAR (structure-activity relationship) data from patents; and utilizing I2E for effectively exploring Dow Jones’ news data for business benefits.

 “We are delighted once again to bring our life sciences and healthcare customers together to share insights and best practice on how they are deriving value from I2E, from bench to bedside,” said Phil Hastings, chief business officer for Linguamatics. “With the number of attendees and range of topics covered, plus the networking opportunities and hands-on, in-depth training sessions, and last but not least, some exciting new developments to share, it promises to be another great event.”
