Next Generation Knowledge Discovery: Accelerating Pharma & Biotech R&D through Automated Information Extraction - WEST COAST
Tuesday, 17 April 2012 from 08:00 to 15:00 (PDT)
The ability to efficiently extract facts and relationships from unstructured text can have a dramatic impact in many areas within the Life Science industry. Examples include: reducing the cost of clinical trials or determining where to best invest your company's money and resources through information extraction from patent .
The seminar will focus on the value in using text mining and automation and how the use of NLP text mining technology can significantly speedup processes – often 10 fold. Bringing improvements to many areas such as:
• Target ID/Validation
• Biomarker Discovery
• Systems Biology
• Translational Medicine
• Competitive Intelligence
• Sentiment Analysis
• Patient Records
• Patent Analysis

Linguamatics is the world leader in deploying innovative natural language processing (NLP) based text mining technology for complex, high value problem solving. Linguamatics has over 10 years' experience in helping companies achieve break-through insights from massive amounts of unstructured,textual data, which contains rich but often difficult-to-access, business-critical information. The Linguamatics approach enables organizations to maximize value from these resources by extracting, synthesizing and distilling this key information into meaningful high value knowledge, enabling them to gain competitive advantage through better and faster decision support.
I2E Intelligent Answers to Drive Business Decisions
Linguamatics I2E aids in the extraction of business-critical facts and relationships hidden in unstructured text in support of information-driven decision making. Using I2E, researchers can do much more than simply cope with overwhelming quantities of information. I2E's unique combination of search and text mining can turn this information into a competitive advantage by providing the ability to answer questions and discover knowledge that would be impossible or intractable to find using conventional methods. I2E's powerful natural language processing (NLP) capabilities go beyond keyword searching to mine large and often complex collections of documents, extracting relevant facts, relationships and entities from unstructured and semi-structured content to support critical decision-making.
