Title Symptom extraction issue
Venue Proceedings of the BioNLP Shared Task 2013 Workshop
Year 2014

This work focuses on signs and symptoms recognition in biomedical texts abstracts. First, this specific task is described from a linguistic point of view. Then a method- ology combining pattern mining and lan- guage processing is proposed. In the ab- sence of an authoritative annotated cor- pus, our approach has the advantage of being weakly-supervised. Preliminary ex- perimental results are discussed and reveal promising avenues.
