Comparing certainty level annotations in clinical NLP: a case study on Swedish and English within the Interlock project

On the recent return from her research visit to the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), Sumithra Velupillai presented the results of a comparative study of certainty-level annotations in clinical NLP written in Swedish and English respectively. The research visit took place within the Interlock project – a collaboration between the IT for Health group at DSV and the School of Medicine’s Division of Biomedical Informatics at UCSD.

The aim of the research visit was to create a taxonomy for a characterization of the expression of (un)certainty in clinical text and to compare these expressions in Swedish and English emergency ward documentation . The overall goal of this research is to improve automatic information extraction from clinical narratives.
