ACCUMULATE: Acquiring crucial medical information using language technology


The ACCUMULATE project will automatically recognise crucial information in the free text of clinical reports written in English and Dutch by designing, developing and evaluating advanced language technology (LT) for deep semantic processing of the texts that are often morpho-syntactically not well-formed. An additional focus is on easy portability of the technology across domains and languages and on the use of visualisation techniques.
