Rebecka and Hercules participated in this years edition of ALTA at Monash University in Melbourne on the 5th to the 7th of December 2016. Rebecka gave a presentation on text mining of pathology reports and Hercules gave an invited talk with the title HEALTH BANK: A Workbench for Data Science Applications in Healthcare. ALTA included presentations, tutorials and a poster session. A short report summarizing selected papers is available on request.
Following the conference, we travelled to Brisbane for a visit at the CSIRO Australian e-Health Research Centre (AeHRC). There we met with Dr Anthony Nguyen who is the leader for the Health Data Semantics group. The meeting included discussions on some of the very interesting reserach performed by the group and a talk by Hercules on Detect HAI – Healthcare associated infection detection.
