Today we had an invited guest Miguel Ballesteros, from the Department of Software Engineering and Artificial Intelligence at Universidad de Complutense, Madrid, that is visiting the Department of Linguistics and Philology, Uppsala University for a research stay this fall.

Miguel talked about dependency parsing of clinical and biomedical scientific text to infer the scope of negation and speculation by traversing dependency structures, Miguel presented also a method of pruning the dependency tree to obain text simplification or with other word text summarisation.
